Good job! What a pain, though, to swap the HDD :)

I am currently working on this laptop and it doesn't open at all like this one. This is only one back... and 18 screws holding it on. I can partially snap the back off but i can't pry it apart by the dvd drive. I'm also guessing the same model is manufactured differently for different retailers. (This happens in the retail hardware world where a dewalt drill from home depot will be made cheaper than a dewalt from ace hardware) so now I"m stuck. any ideas would be helpful. thanks.

ok found the problem. i accidentally popped out the dvd drive (when I was just trying to open it lol) and up under the lip I found three 1/8" long very-flat head screws. unscrewed those and the back came right off.
