    Yes it is way too easy. Childs play - one Phillips screw is all there is to take out and put back in. After you figure it out, you will be able to do it in less than one minute. Push firm when seating the chip is the common message .

    i would encourage you to put your own ram in as apple over charges for it.

    most people use owc or crucial.
