Opening the case on a Sony Vaio PCV-W1/G

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Does anyone know how to open the case on a Sony Vaio PCV-W1/G.
Apparently it's the desktop model that looks like a laptop.

I have a friend who has one and nobody he has asked has been able to do
it. It seems Sony have designed it to be difficult to open.

There does not appear to be any instructions online either.

Thanks for any help.
