"Usually there is slide "button/catch" on the front edge of a laptop... it slides to the right often, but sometimes to the left...?

Sometimes a similar slide catch/button on one end (at the side), sometimes one at each end/side/

Often the button may need to be depressed slightly as well...

Might even be underneath...?

I can't see they would design, sell and ship one that didn't have some means of securing the top display cover in place when not in use? And the usual (in my "limited" experience) are as above...

If/when you manage to get it open - please post with how you dun it..

i agree with trvir but if nothing else the owners manual would probably tell you that if you dont have it you could go to there website and download it.

I had browse of the manual on the web... Couldn't see anything that actually said how to open it,or lock it.. Nor any illustrations of the complete case - which is a little odd to say the least... Only illustrations I noted were how to insert RAM.., or remove the battery.

Being on a limited connection at present (capped download on a seldom used connection over the next two days) I am loathe to actually download it in full and then have a detailed look-see...

I don't think there is a latch, just pull the top to open it.
