I'm planing on buying a laptop in the near future, the frontrunner is
http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/laptops/NP700Z5B-W01UB
A Samsung Series 7 NP700Z5BH Notebook.

It comes with a 750gb HD, and I would rather place a SSD of some sort in its place. Has anybody here done the same, or know if it would fit in the slim case without extensive modding?

You shouldn't have an issue with replacing the existing hard drive with a SSD. Most 2.5" drives will have the same dimensions, but you have to make sure that its the standard height of 9.5mm (12mm is another size). Newer ultrathin/ultrabooks have started to use more custom sized laptop drives/ssd's of 7.5mm; since you are talking about a 15.6" notebook, I highly doubt you'll run into any issues.

The biggest issue you'll have to worry about is how to access the drive bay and making sure you pair the drive with a proper sataII or sataIII drive. I honestly can't find the info easy enough since the specs sheet on samsung's website is very generic and not detailed enough.

I can already tell you need to crack it open to accomplish this.
