  The only edge I can see is around the inside of the cutout around the
ram and the airport card.  I can get a flat bladed screwdriver under
that.  If I do that and pull, am I going to remove the bottom plate or
just mess up the bottom plate?  I don't see any place around the outside
edge that I can pull on or get a screwdriver under.  Or, am am missing
the right place to apply pressure?
