Abstract

This article describes a structure of Note size PC (personal computer) which is effective to upgrade LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) size of PC. Fig. 1 shows the keyboard (KBD) Bezel and the Bottom Cover for this structure of PC. The KBD bezel has wall at the front. And the front wall of the bottom cover is adjusted shorter to the front wall of the KBD Bezel. Fig. 2 shows the general structure of PC. This need change both the KBD bezel and the bottom cover when LCD size is changed larger. Fig. 3 shows this structure of PC. When LCD size changes larger, it need not change the bottom cover. Only the wall of "L" KBD bezel need be adjusted. It can save the cost of the tooling for the bottom cover. And it does not make the difference of base cover in the system. It can simplify the manufacturing system.

KBD Bezel with front wall for LCD Upgradability

   This article describes a structure of Note size PC
(personal computer) which is effective to upgrade LCD (Liquid
Crystal Display) size of PC.  Fig. 1 shows the keyboard (KBD) Bezel
and the Bottom Cover for this structure of PC.  The KBD bezel has
wall at the front.  And the front wall of the bottom cover is
adjusted shorter to the front wall of the KBD Bezel.  Fig. 2 shows
the general structure of PC.  This need change both the KBD bezel and
the bottom cover when LCD size is changed larger.  Fig. 3 shows this
structure of PC.  When LCD size changes larger, it need not change
the bottom cover.  Only the wall of "L" KBD bezel need be adjusted.
It can save the cost of the tooling for the bottom cover.  And it
does not make the difference of base cover in the system.  It can
simplify the manufacturing system.
