Yeah, it's a pain to open. I'd box the drive in an external case and plug it in that way.

What about the memory? I can get the unit from one of our suppliers for $920, so I'm really thinking about it, but I need more than the stock 512mb

Memory is a Snap. There is a panel at the bottom. Take off two screws and pop in the ram. It's the Hard Drive that is a pain to replace and probably should not be done by the end user. I use External Fire Wire. Very fast.

The RAM is meant to be changed by the user.
