Ideapad hardware upgrade question

I'm shopping for a laptop and want to make sure it will be easy to upgrade memory and/or hard drive before purchasing a system.

 

I can't find hardware manuals for Ideapad notebooks. How are the hard drive bay and memory slots accessed on 14" consumer notebooks, especially the G450 and Y450?

Thanks, but I'm looking for the service manuals for those systems.

 

I want to find out what I'll need to open, remove, etc. to replace memory and hard drive.

Zilch for the Y450 but there is at least a user's guide for the G450.  There's a little section there about replacing drives and memory.
