    I just got my 27" in (yay!) but now I'm scratching my head trying to figure out how to get the door off. There's no manual either in the box or online. Anyone else figured out how to get it off?

    Unplug the power cable then push the button hidden underneath.

    pull the power cord out and take a close look and ye will see a small button at the top of the power connector press that and lo the door will open

    Then there's instructions of the backside of the panel that comes loose on how to insert the RAM. :)

    Hah, yep, I took a search on apple.com, but there's no support articles.

    But as others mentioned, if you remove the power cord there's a teeny tiny button, and according to some done this already - you might need to use a pen to push it all the way in so the panel pops off! :)

    Why the hell doesn't Apple include instructions with the computer? Especially about something as important as dealing with the RAM door? I love the company and all, but this seems REALLY stupid.

    Manuals used to ship with their computers. It's stupid.

    Well at least a PDF inside the computer, or an URL-file to a guide.
