I believe there was one for the Jetbook, since they are the same hardware it should do for you. Let me look for it.

This one where he dyed the plastic blue.

And this one has some very good high res shots.

These aren't very good, but a while ago I took mine apart. I was unable to get past the foil stuff covering the main board.

They come apart easily. Not much to find from a user's point of view. Not much for a
"modder" either. The screen looks to be replaceable, though.

Just keep track of where each screw goes, they are not all the same length and it matters in a couple of places.

Luck;
Ken

P.S.; You can see a little more with the JBL, your internal battery looks to be
covering more than the battery case does.

Thanks, MR. Pockets, for the look inside. Does anyone know if an ALPro replacement battery can be easily found (a standard battery of some kind?) and also is it easily installable?

I'm asking for future reference only. It just bugs me that manufacturers this century seem to be getting away with producing devices intended to be thrown away, by design.

Thsnkd for the fotos and info

Appreciate the pics, Ghosthawk, Mr. Pockets, and info Ken
wow, thought the libre had a 400 mhz processor, a dragonball jeez that's 1990s
guess they got some FAT margins on the libre and JB, it works, so I guess that's the main thing. Yeah, that throwaway design IS irritating, good thing the processor is so slow, if it generated any heat with that battery covering the system board there'd be trouble. Thanks, Mark

I have seen batteries on ebay for about $30, and yes, the battery is easy to pull out. (And put back in.)
