Physical Overview Continued
The screen can be tilted a maximum of roughly 110 degrees. The hinges are large and strong.
Opening up the unit proved to be easier than expected. Just remove the screws and open her up. There doesn't seem to be any room for adding more memory or storage, but you can easily replace parts if required. The battery pack isn't what we typically see in notebooks, it has a more rudimentary look and is designed to fit in a dedicated space.
Two 8GB Crucial DDR4 modules produce a total of 16GB in dual channel. There is a Transcend 256GB M.2 SSD; I believe it operates in SATA mode. The hard drive is from HSGT, and the WIFI/BT M.2 device is an Intel 8260NGW.
The heat sink utilizes three heat pipes and cools the CPU and GPU at the same time. The blower fan is large, but it does a solid job of cooling the CPU and GPU even when gaming. The unit doesn't get too loud, but it produces noticeable noise when maxed out.
