These fell out of my Pinebook when I tried to replace the eMMC.

These fell out of my Pinebook when I was upgrading the eMMC.
I cannot figure out where they came from. They are magnetic and stick to each other quite easily.
Can anyone tell me where they are from and how to put them back? Are they important?
    Any help greatly appreciated.

First I have to say, I don't know.

However, I do remember a discussion somewhere about the display lid and how to fix that the Pinebook recognizes that the lid is closed.
In that discussion magnetic metal pieces where mentioned. Maybe this is a idea to search further.

These are magnets used for the hall switch. Just put them back in their original position along the front edge of the Pinebook 14" - there are alignment cutouts for them.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Is there a photo anywhere I can look at, Luke?

Hmm, I'll find one for you - if not, I'll take the bottom of my 14" and snap a picture tomorrow [will update this post]
