How to replace memory or hard drive?

Can't find manuals or videos for this specific model disassembly. I'm an IT pro and I don't want to chance damaging an HP case (I just did that to a G3). Help? Ideas?

Thanks, however, this is for the previous model. I have seen 2 different styles in videos. If only it were as easy as the model you provided, I would have never had to post. There is no open panel on the bottom. On the other model, there wasn't one either, but it had a body around the keyboard. On this model, the case is molded around the keys. There is no clear place to crack the case to get in to remove drive or add memory.
