as I thought ... I have to open up the notebook - strange design choice
and most likely, if I do this I'll void the warranty
You are very welcome!!
Yes, the design is not the best one. I have got a mSATA under the top cover too. Unfortunately use a common 2.5" SSD so no need for that. I think that a hard drive upgrade cannot void the warranty at all. However, I would keep the original drive..
