Quote from TekMac:

Mine didn't have a screw under the magnet.

I don't mean that a screw was missing, I'm saying that there is no screw or screw hole installed on my 14" in that location. The other steps were dead-on though.

No magnet, screw or screw hole on my upper case either.

Brett Fox - Ответить

Some iBooks like the 16 VRAM model have the magnet but there is no screw behind it.
