    • Remove the two round rubber feet at the hinge-edge of the laptop.

    The process took me about 30 minutes. If I were to have to do it again then I could probably do it in 10 minutes now that I know what is involved!

    • Remove the eleven 4 mm Phillips #00 screws from the back panel.

    These screws on other models are Torx T5 or T6, not Phillips

    T4 screws on all but the two under the rear rubber feet; those are Phillips PH0 (and my model had two square rubber feet).

The bottom of the pictured device may feature Phillips #00 screws, but I also have this laptop and the screws around the edge of the bottom panel are Torx T5s on my device.
