    But don't look forward to it, because now it's the AmigaOne XE's turn - I receive one from colleague from US and I want to upgrade and optimize her.
    Imac - it is run on a long track - and I hate to dissassemly this all-in-ones.

    It's actually not that hard if you follow the iFixit steps. I recently re-applied thermal paste to mine and you basically have to take the whole thing apart.

    Biggest hurdle is getting the clips at the top lose with a credit card.

    I find it much easier using an old HDD magnet held against the front corners of the top of the screen surround/fascia from a failed HDD or some other magnet you might have about the house, but it does need to have quite a strong pull/magnetic attraction. :-D

    That fiddling about with a credit card or similar tool never appealed to me. 8-D
