    • Use the plastic opening tool to separate the top faceplate.

      • The faceplate consists of the entire shiny plastic surface and the holed metal center where the keyboard would normally be.

    • Carefully pry the faceplate away from the laptop's base by sliding the plastic opening tool around the perimeter of the entire device. You'll hear the sound of several clicks as you do this.

      • Prying apart the faceplate will take a little convincing, but be sure to not bend it too much. It would be a shame to put a crack in its glossy shine.
