    Unless you're making your own components it's easy.

    I've made 4.

    The thing normally has a brace.

    Or it should just slot ontop of the CPU.

    It's not supposed to be easy, that's why the guys at TINY get payed too much.

    It's easy m'dear the parts all slot together nicely... then you have a lovely new machine... trying to load the correct drivers is a NIGHTMARE though especially when Windows insists IT has the correct drivers and nothing will work... :D

    I'm convinced they're purposely designed to be so arcane. Outdated cryptic technology.
    I took mine apart to add some components and it looked like naked 3PO inside.

    I blew the dust out of mine once. Oh, and I put in a sound card. But that's as brave as I ever want to be with computers. I rather like being a tech moron. It suits me.
