Netbook autopsy

Around a year or so ago, I owned a compaq netbook.
It was pretty worn out by that time, to the point where the shell had a major crack along the length, and where I already had to repeatedly screw the screen brackets back in place (eventually just glued them in place)
Someone didn't see the power cord on the ground, and apparantly, these things can't withstand a one meter fall, so after a year and a half of decent service, it was pretty much beyond repair.

The thing was pretty much busted, and I did what every self respecting tech geek would do when equipment breaks out of warranty.
I pulled the thing apart to scavenge for parts, of course.
Here's the results, taken about a year ago.

As a sidenote, I didn't really get any useful parts from it.
