    Removing H/D from old i-Mac (?) ...
    I'd like to dump my old blueberry i-Mac but first need to remove the hard drive. However, I can't work out how to open the Mac's plastic casing. (Can't bring myself to take a hammer to it!)

    I presume the casing pops apart; but where does one start to prise?

    Comments greatly appreciated ...
