Main gimmick: main unit with display if not permanently connected with keyboard/dock.
Main unit is self-contained and is not requiring keyboard/dock wich apart from keyboard/touchpad contains only two USB-A ports and additional speakers.

Main unit/display is held by magnets when inserted into keyboard. It looks like electrical connection is using USB and plain analog signal to speakers. Connector is symmetrical and main unit can be inserted both ways.

Issue: left speaker from the main unit was not working. It was visually damaged, partially melted. Buying exact replacement is possible, but not worth the price from my perspective, so I've replaced it with similar size speaker from cell phone. I would not care too much about stereo symmetry here as these miniature speakers cannot offer decent sound quality anyway.

While right speaker is working, there is also sign of melting. Perhaps the difference was caused by the proximity of the processor located near the left one. This raises the question if JBL logo is actually worth anything.

Damage was also visible on the speaker diaphragm.

Keyboard/dock is also easy to open with four screws hidden under feed and some latches.

Not a lot going on: keyboard + trackpad, 2 USB-A ports and extra speakers complementing small speakers from main/display unit, adding some low frequencies.
