Setting aside the driver that handy label called for, we whip out a T5 and dispatch the case screws.

While requiring two different drivers just to get the thing open has us scratching our heads, at least we've got screws! That's better than the alternatives—gummy adhesive to cut or clips that may break.

We spoke too soon—there are clips, too, and hefty ones at that. As we wrestle with the case, we're left wondering if Dell went for the trifecta: screws, clips, and glue?
