    1. There will be an easily accessible hatch/slide tray about 2.5 inches wide somwhere on the underside. Occasionally it's accessible by removing the keyboard (usually a couple of spring loaded clips)

    2. Just about every modern drive is the 9mm height 2.5 inch type (older ones were 15mm) and you should be able to fit a 20Gb one, larger on a BIOS upgrade.
