This is the drive: http://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-96527.../dp/B0012S6ZNU

I'd like to swap the internal drive into my MacBook but can't figure out how to open it up.
Thanks in advance
Mike

The top pops off if you pry on it. Went from 80gb to 320gb, sweet!

Why not just buy a bare drive and a separate enclosure?
Easier to open an enclosure that's designed to be opened, keeps the warranty intact on the drive and the enclosure, eliminates any uncertainty about drive interface, etc.
