Physical Overview Continued
The WASD keys are boxed to indicate they are meant for gaming. The keys are soft to the touch, but they are not rubberized, so they should last a little longer and not show too much wear. The trackpad has a smooth surface for moving the mouse and a dimpled surface at the bottom for clicking. I found it to be very accurate, and TP-rejection was quite good and didn't need to be tweaked for typing.
The power button in the center is surrounded on either side by speakers, and these speakers work with those at the front of the notebook. The special functions are not enabled by default. Instead, you must press "Fn" to raise or lower volume using the "F8/F9" keys.
The ODD can be removed by shifting over the lock button to unlock and pulling the drive out. Changing out the DDR4 SO-DIMMs is also quite simple; you just unscrew a single screw, and the cover comes off easily granting you access to the SO-DIMMs.
To add in a second M.2 drive, you must remove the rear panel of the notebook, which is done by unscrewing about a dozen of the screws on the back.
There are two blower fans, and the heat pipes are spread over the CPU and iGPU cores, so that if one is being used more than the other, both fans can contribute to cooling performance. Adding in a second M.2 drive is as easy as it is on a desktop PC. All you need to do is remove the screw, pop in the drive, and then screw it down. There is a thermal pad on the battery and the M.2 drive so that heat can be transferred more easily to the case.
