no its pretty easy, just remove the 3 screws on the back for the keyboard, flip it backover, lift the keyboard up, (dont remove it), just lay it backwards on top of the palmrest, the hard drive cage is right there, think it has 1 screw, slide out the cage, replace the drive and slide the cage back in, replace 1 screw, put the keyboard back, flip it over...replace the 3 screws for the keyboard...you're done....here is the manual for the 1011
NOTE: when removing the keyboard...there are 3 tabs I think that run along the top of the keyboard (there might be 1 on each side of the keyboard also), use a small screwdriver or even a credit card to pop those 3 tabs out then the keyboard will remove easily just be careful of the ribbon cable....if you are careful you can just lay the keyboard upside down on top of the palm reset..kinda just flip it on the palm rest....and when you put the keyboard back remember about the 3 tabs, you should hear them kinda snap back into place again...just read the instructions in the manual...they will back up and describe what I just described..probably better though...but they also tell you to remove the ribbon cable..you really dont have to do that though
REMEMBER: unplug the unit and remove the battery before you start
when I replaced the drive in my Mini it took me about 10 minutes
