Thanks for your help. Your guess was right, there are catches (a few
only, though) around the front of the case, but I had managed to open
them already. The thing is now held together by something in the
middle, and I cannot see what that might be.

I've found some descriptions of similar problems in the web, there,
it was suggested that more screws may be underneath the keyboard. I
don't know how to remove the keyboard, though. There is no visible
mechanism for removing it, so I was expecting that basically, the top
part of the case would come off, revealing the keyboard and the other
stuff sitting on the lower part of the case -- but perhaps, someone
around here knows how to remove the keyboard without (fully) opening
the case first?

I'll probe around with a little screwdriver tonight...

Greetinx, Jan
