  2. This only shows the 11-inch model of the x360 laptops. The 13-inch and 15-inch have a different hinge design. This also results in a totally different dissassembly guide because with those models, the bottom doesn’t come off like in the 11-inch models – it is the keyboard side that comes off as the bottom stays put (it is all one piece on the bottom, and everything “bolts” to it).

    Please make a guide for the 13 and 15 inch models!!
