email said opening case is easy. Move latches and lift top straight up.
The other think that would be good to check is if option boards are present.
They are uncommon so effect value. You can sell some from the back if an
extra connector is present at the option board spot or the APU light blinks
after power on.
The manual is here
Pg 2/3 show latches and tell how to open case.
Pg 5 shows APU led and option connector location.
Pg 8/9 shows how to pull out system board to check for option boards.
Just remove the power supply and floppy cable from the system board then
loosen the thumbscrews and it should pull out enough to check for daughter
