In case someone decide to disassemble own laptop (upgrade or fix
something), but has no clue where to start or afraid to screw something up,
it's always a good idea to follow a proper manual.

What you could do is to look for a documentation at the website of Original
design manufacturer/Original equipment manufacturer. Two major players are
Quanta and Compal.

If someone needs a clarification about what ODM is and such, check out these
links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_Design_Manufacturer

http://tuxmobil.org/laptop_oem.html

Last link, as well, provides means to find an information about the
manufacturer of your laptop, in particular.

One way to do it is to, carefully (read: close the lid, hold in both hands),
put your laptop upside down, and look for a sticker with "Model Name:",
"Rating:", etc. fields on it.

Those of you who own panv3 may download the documentation from here:

Good luck!

Yeah, emailing system76 is a lot quicker and better. Tom gave excellent help when I was upgrading my CPU.
