    Does anyone think that the mac mini is just a nightmare to open. I had to open mine today, to put some RAM in, and it was far from easy. And in-doing so scratched the computer. I even spoke to someone at apple support and he said he has heard some horror story of people try to get this computer open.

    Apple should have used screws to hold the computer together.

    a few years ago i worked in an Apple Repair Centre. There always seemed to be plastic clips you never thought of. Once you knew a machine, things went more easy.
    Practise and tools are the key here i guess. Sorry to hear about your scratches.

    Cheers.

    Maybe you got a little "frustrated" taking it apart and gave the little thing a smash with the fist or hard object close by? C'mon...admit it.

    The "Cave Man Syndrome" is always there waiting to come out.
