So my new/old MBA (you know, the one that guarantees that there will be a substantial update introduced next week) arrived today. It's in a hard plastic shell. The shell is orange/rad and hideous, and I don't care for the added weight/bulk in any event. The bottom comes off easily. The top does not. It looks like there's a plastic strip inserted into the area of the hinges. The seller's suggestion ("pull up easily on the sides near the hinges") accomplishes nothing. I really don't want to destroy this computer (and I'm especially concerned about the already-fragile hinges). But I also really want this shell gone. Any thoughts?
