They can but they most likely they won't. But I wouldn't risk it because altough opening your laptop like that does not void your warranty, if you damage something inside while doing it that's enough of an excuse for dell to tell you that the problem that your having was caused by doing the swap and they will not fix it. I'm scaring you here but if change your system back to its inspiron chassis before you send it out or a technician comes over, they won't ever know you did the swap..just make sure you're not eating a jelly sandwitch while you're doing the conversion back and forth
I kept the i600m chassis if I ever have to make a complete notebook exchange. However, even if though I have the home service, I do all the repairs myself. I just call up dell to send me a replacement parts and agree to void my warranty if I break something while doing the part replacement.
|The lack of metal in the LCD in the 600m and the D600 case bothers me. I'm ordering a quicksnap cover in hopes it will sturdy up the LCD.
D600's lcd is more stable than i600m's. It's made from magnesum alloy, so they say, while 600m's lcd back cover is kind of funny - plastic shielded by aluminum foil and some padding.
Btw, when you're taking out 600m's lcd, get your self a Torx #6 screwdriver for the side screws (not present on d600)
