MAC Mini - How to open ?

Hi All,

Im a MAC newbe.

I wondered if it is possible to replace the Hard Drive inside my MAC Mini and how to open it ?

I dont want to damage the case when I open it. So far I cant find any screws that allow me to open the case on my MAC.

Any help would be gratfully received

Many Thanks

Samantha

It sounds terrible the first time you do it. Putting it back together is a little bit harder, make sure the back ports line up properly first.
Place it on a towel when it is upside down, so you don't scratch the top up.
