The manuals seem to require flash because they have pretty hilights and such to point out part locations. I found them easy to follow, par for the course with Dell. The 2100 makes it a bit harder to take apart than say, a mini 9 or E1505/6400, but I suspect this is in the intrest of durability and spill-proofing. I replaced my wireless card (since dell had shipped the wrong one in the laptop) with little trouble, though pushing up the keyboard proved to be a bit of a challenge. I ended up using a bent paperclip to stuff into the screw hole, and that worked fine.

Thanks for the link to this, it's really come in handy for me.

I was looking to see if there was a spare PCI-e slot I could install an SSD into as a boot drive, then use a 2.5" SATA drive for storage. I didn't see one.

Shame, they don't seem to have anything about the touch screen.

They also mention nothing about the webcam. I plan on taking mine apart again at some point and documenting that for here.
