Rating: 5/5 If you have an older Mac mini... September 7, 2014 It's a good idea to have one of these tools handy. The previous time I opened a Mac mini (with the older style case) to upgrade RAM, I used a bunch of "credit card" type thin plastic cards, inserted into the seam to dislodge the hooks. It eventually worked, but it was time-consuming and annoying (and damaged the cards). When I recently ordered an OWC SSD to replace the Mac mini's hard drive, I saw the "official" tool at a reasonable price, so I added it to my order. Opening up the Mac mini this time was SO much easier. It took less than one minute.

Even if you don't plan on doing any upgrading, I noticed A LOT of dust inside the Mac mini when I opened it (which I blew out). So, you may want to get one of these tools, just to open and "clean" your old Mac mini, and possibly make it run cooler (and last longer). Take a look at any of the OWC upgrade installation videos for these Mac mini models, to see the proper technique.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
