This was a bit misleading. The title of the article is “Disassembling HP Compaq dx2000MT Hard Drive.” Therefore, I expected to see someone actually disassembling a hard drive, which would have been really cool. Instead, the article shows only the removal of a hard drive from a desktop computer’s case. Perhaps the title should say “Removing HP Compaq dx2000MT Hard Drive” or at best “Disassembling HP Compaq dx2000MT Case.”
