    Get a little plastic divider tray to keep the screws organized. You'll have 26 of them, I believe; all are different sizes.

    What really bugged me was that in order to remove the hard drive you had to unglue a ribbon cable and remove a piece of tape.

    I don't think in 25 years of taking computers apart and putting them back together have I ever had to unglue a EU replaceable storage device.

    Like who was the "Genius" who thought of that?

    Conversely, I think that access to the HD in the unibody machines is just a little too easy.
