As part of the Sony giveaway, I would like to contribute with this VAIO teardown. Bear with me as this is my first tutorial. This is a VGN-T12” wide screen laptop with an Intel Pentium Ma. It’s an oldie that still does the job. Well let’s get to the teardown.

just a note to some that might find using a very small pair of needle nose pliers with serrated teeth for replacing the tiny pieces of plastic that secures the ribbons in place ... I have a pair, but they are just a bit too big and I need to find a source for some really small serrated tip pliers, so if anyone can direct me to a source, this would be most helpful and appreciated ... thanks, Jim
