I , too, have been waiting for an answer about screw sizes.  After experimenting,  what worked for me were M2 flat head machine screws  (M2 is the size).

4mm for the short screws and 6 mm for the longer ones....

Its inexpensive to just buy a set of M2 screws--I think it will be easy to lose them...

Thank you for the information. I've updated the Wiki to include what we know;

Wiki - Pinebook Pro - Pinebook Pro Dimensions

As usual, feel free to correct, improve or comment, (good or politely bad).

Eventually I hope all information is available. Not that I plan on building my own Pinebook Pro. But if I want to modify it, details like this will help.

Done, thank you.

And, I added a note that the 4 shorter screws are used along the front edge. Might help someone putting it back together.
