No, it's under the motherboard, one of those awful 3v lithiums.
The next question is - what's that funny header underneath the
motherboard for? It looks like it's wired as the 8-bit part of an
expansion slot, but it's a bit hard to tell. I can't even see anywhere
that a cable might come out, if it was something like a modem (which
would make sense).
