My Sony VAIO netbook case is closed, all I could remove so far is a dozen of screws, some covers, the battery and the hard disk.

Using a screwdriver I investigated the keyboard keys, the keyboard mask and the slit between the upper and lower case parts.

I found some pressure fitting points in the slit.

I could force one of the sides of the case to become free, but I couldn't free all sides of the case at once.

Is there any tip I should follow when opening such netbook case?

Did you follow some guide to unscrew everything? Some of them might be hidden or underneath some parts... – woliveirajr Sep 3 '12 at 14:45
Second that. Also, search for a "maintenance manual". (Not the regular user manual, but the one for repair technicians). – Hennes Sep 3 '12 at 15:25
