    Hello,

    Been using Mac Towers exclusively for years and years, and I'm now thinking about adding a laptop to my setup. I've seen the specs and all, but one question remains for the *unibodies* MacBooks: how easy is it to access the battery, HD and RAM to swap them myself?

    Thanks

    The bottom case is screwed down by bunch of Phillip head screws. (You can use a smaller screwdriver to unscrew them). Once you unscrew them, the bottom plate comes off exposing you to the battery, ram and hard drive.
