After 2 hours of carful prying, all i was able to do was crack, the glass, break the plastic part that clips to the metal, and completely shredded thenew opening tools that I just got in the mail. This is not as easy as it looks. Luckly the glass was already broken on mine, but I cannot get it off.
This was super easy. My computer is noticeably faster now after replacing a 1GB card with a 2 GB. Make sure you push it in all the way though!
