you have to remove the keyboard to get the bottom cover off!
This is quite common with some of the more recent machines I've encountered. Annoying and the risk of dinting/damaging/wrecking the keyboard frame in some cases whilst trying to remove it (plus the hassle disconnecting and reconnecting the cable(s)). All for the sake of not having visible screws .. perhaps? :roll:

Still, will be good to know what your overall impressions of this machine are, notwithstanding access to the innards. :)

I certainly will. I will have to install the 32gb of ram, and the 500gb NvME drive. I am hoping it arrives by Monday, so I can have it up and running before my birthday. I am certainly excited.

Both my wife and I have a Toyota Yaris: mine's from 2000 and hers is from 2002. Both with about 150.000 miles (250.000 kilometers), and both run as good as new. Only the central door locking has broken on both cars, but repairing that is too expensive so we let that be.
I just Googled the Yaris, and it looks a lot like the Chevy Aveo I used to own.

This past July, I got rid of my 2004 Aveo, which was having all kinds of mechanical issues, and bought a 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Talk about an upgrade! Oh my...
Please be polite and remember to mark your fixed problem [SOLVED].

Presently running Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3.

Know when what you're doing is trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, and STOP.

Still looking for a new job.
