    Hello my beloved Apple Community. I have a question regarding the screw to the RAM door and what type of screwdriver I need to take it out. I have my RAM sitting here waiting to be used and I want to make sure I have the right equipment come delivery time so I can get crackin' right away.

    Another question, what kind of desk do you recommend for the 24"? I have a crappy enclosed desk with shelves and I KNOW that it won't fit in there, and am in desperate need of one before, again, delivery time. I've seen a lot of nice looking desks in the pics people have been posting of their set-ups and hoping to get some good links. Thanks a lot for any info guys (and girls)!

    I'll tell ya - I just got my 24" 2.8 and had a helluva time getting the RAM door off. The user guide will tell you you need a #2 Phillips but that is a bit misleading. I think I ended up using a #1 but it had a very small head on it and was able to grab onto a screw that is very shallow (at least mine was). Most of the screwdrivers I had wouldn't catch on the screw but I finally got it. Only takes a couple of turns and then I used something to gently pry the door off.

    After that it was a piece of cake.

    I used a #2 phillips and had no trouble at all. Make sure not to push down on the screw too hard as some have stipped the screw threads by doing that.
