  1. Hey,

    thanks for this nice teardown-manual. I am from Germany and theres no ENVY15 with QHD and new Skylake-processor. I want to buy an 15t and replace the keyboard with a QWERTZ in Germany.

    Can you tell me how easily replace the keyboard? Or do i have to completely tear down the whole notebook?
