I've got one right here I recently aquired (had to build the special
console cable for a serial console).... I opened it and put it back
together.... while it wasn't as easy as they could have made it, I 
didn't find it THAT bad....  I've been inside worse but I can't 
give specific examples.... except most were PC boxes (one was an
older Compaq desktop... upgrading the drive or memory (can't recall
which) was a major excercise in anger management)).
