How Do I Open Up the Case on a White Intel iMac?

I need to open up a 20" white Intel MacBook. I pulled out the 4 screws at the bottom, but I cannot get this case open! On the older G5 iMacs, it was a piece of cake. All you did was remove the bottom screws, pull back on the stand and the thing opened right up.

I searched on YouTube & found nothing for this model. If someone could send me a video link showing this, that would be great.
