My poor disassembled Dell XPS laptop

After 3.5 years of heavy usage my Dell XP M1210 laptop died last week, the perfect opportunity to competely dismantle it. After hours of software work it is always nice to do something else... like hardware ;-)

Thanks to the instruction at AhWee.com.

Unfortunately repairing the laptop failed: the burned smell near the motherboard confirms my guess that the motherboard has died due to the heat generated during normal usage (Dell XPS laptops are famous for that anyway).

Anyone want some laptop memory or other spare parts? :)
