Online commentary observes that there can be great difficulty in opening, for the first time, an XPS 17 9700's bottom case.

It was manufactured to pry the keyboard from the metal case. After meeting a great deal of resistance in carrying out the task, I stopped to solicit advice from this community relative to some, as it were trick, to opening the base cover.

I want to emphasize that nothing is wrong with this laptop, you help me take good care of it. I'm just curious. People open these online, on You Tube, after saying it's darn hard to get in the first time, which seems true.
