This 2012 System76 laptop was my main laptop at one time but now is only used for Linux and Windows presentations.

Disassembly Notes

Changing basic components is easy. Carefully lift the back panel very slowly from the finger indentation on the left side of the panel. The fan is attached to the panel, not the inside of the computer. Once the back panel is raised slightly, then disconnect the cable from the motherboard.
