We're ready to remove the rest of the peripherals. It'd be great to get a look at the battery, fans, heat sink, and speakers. Except we can't.
The symmetrical logic board keeps guard over the remaining components, so we spudger off its connecting cables and wrest it free from the case.
The heat sink is attached to the logic board with screws on the bottom. With the board out of the case, we're able to remove the heat sink for inspection—with a heat pipe running in each direction, it's got twice the pipe of the entry-level model.
