As I have disassembled a half-dozen or so notebooks and Pocket PCs to repair various failures, I have enough experience to know that the best advice is to pry a little around the edges and ONLY pry harder when there is an obvious sign of opening in any one place. Too much pressure in the wrong place can cause cracking, breaking off a clip, or breaking a ribbon cable. I do not have experience with that model. My suggestion would go further to say don't pry corners, as they rarely if ever have clips. Mostly I try about 1/3 in from the corners on any given edge, sometimes right in the middle of a longer side. The most important thing to observe is which side is 'over' and which 'under' in terms of how they move when pried. Using a hard, thin guitar pick can be helpful, as there is much less chance of damaging the casing than when using something like a screwdriver or thin knife blade.
