Received my 32GB RunCore, popped the first screw out with no issues, then arrived at the second. I used a #0 precision Phillips and ended up BENDING the screwdriver itself to get that second screw out. I have replaced the RAM, the wireless card and have installed the Bluetooth module in this thing and have not run into another screw like they put into the SSD. Locktight or not, I think they used an air impact gun at the factory. Be careful everyone who takes on this little challenge.

When I opened her up to replaced the RAM, I was scared I was really going to screw (no pun intended) something up, but it was really easy. I just put some good pressure and turned. No stripping, etc, and it's all working well now .
