1. Removing the bottom plate
Remove 10 screws that securing the bottom plate. Because there are some snaps securing the bottom plate to the body, so we need to use a pick pry up the bottom plate along the edge to release the snaps.
After all snaps were released, open the bottom plate with your fingers.
Under the bottom plate, you can get access to the RAM, SSD, HDD, Wi-Fi card, heat sink, cooling fan, speakers, battery and motherboard.
Its interior design is quite neat, with almost no spare space.
