Hey all, we need to purchase N23 Chromebook rubber feet in bulk. The lower case replacements (item number 5CB0N00710-W) from Lenovo do not come with replacement rubber feet, and the middle schoolers that use the devices we service keep prying them off. From the conversations I've had with and overheard from my manager, they are either not available for purchase from Lenovo, or are prohibitively expensive for the quantities we may require (minimum of a hundred, and I wouldn't be surprised if we will require over a thousand over the course of our contract to support the N23s).
I've been looking around the internets for information about the lower cases, trying to figure out clues as to who manufactured them, so that maybe we could contact them directly for a purchase order.
If anyone can assist, it would be most appreciated.
EDIT: The Lenovo parts lookup tool results for the 5CB0N00710 includes three photos, including a box of 10 lower cases that was shipped to Lenovo from Quanta Computer Inc. I have yet to determine if Quanta also manufactures the rubber feet. Will update as more information becomes available. If you have information that could speed up this process, please share. Thanks again.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
I tried using 5CB0N00710 to get compatible model showing 80YS N23-CHROMEBOOK.
Got part number 5F40N00713 Foot Q 80YS UP+DOWN on parts look up ( click MISC EXTERNAL on commodity type).
Not sure if a bulk order is possible, but here is what shows in Lenovo encompass.
I hope this helps answer your query.
