Hard drive replacement (2.5") for the Dell XPS M2010 MXP061 laptop.

This computer has a primary hard drive on the left side of the system (viewed from the top) and a secondary hard drive on the right side. Since this computer has more than one hard drive, the hard drives may be in a RAID configuration. You may need to reconfigure the RAID configuration on the new hard drive(s) that you install.

Hey Johnathan, can you include some information on how to remove the top cover and the cosmetic cover so the hard drive can be accessed?
