I have a 15" early 2011 BTO 2.2 with SSD. I'm not a noob when it comes to this stuff, I've built several PC's and upgraded the ram and hdd on my pre-unibody 2008 MBP. But for the life of me I can't get the bottom panel off! Every video I've watched it just pops right off. I've removed every bottom screw. It's almost like it's stuck in the center underneath. I can get my fingers around every edge, but it still won't go! I mean, I don't want to apply too much force and bend or break something on my new $2000 laptop. I'm trying to upgrade my ram. But it's almost like it's glued down. Does anyone else have experience with this problem and can tell me what to do? It's so weird! It should just pop right off, but it's not at all. Not even close. Yes, I've triple checked every screw. Thanks!
