The autopsy revealed that access inside the base, the base can be obtained without any problems. Part of the components are modular, making it easy to replace them if necessary: ​​this refers to the standard SATA-disk and SSD M.2 SSD

Another advantage of the design is called the possibility of replacing. all the display unit as a whole, without having to disassemble the base.

at the same time, the CPU, the graphics accelerator and memory chips are soldered on the main board that prevents their upgrade. Therefore, buyers should think several times before purchasing a candy bar in the minimum configuration. Some components are mounted in the screen module, which is why access to them is hindered
