Default Question about my laptop shell

Is it possible for me to reshape parts of my laptop shell by heating and then bending, I know this is possible if the plastic is thermoplastic (or thermosetting, not 100% sure but think I'm right) but I'm not sure if it is or how to find out.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Let me know if you want to know the brand and model of the laptop.

Doubtful. Usually it's just cheap plastic, and they're shaped a certain way to fit the components properly.

I thought so, I wasn't too hopeful. Thanks though.
