The Atlantis can be easily accessed by pushing in on 2 clips  which hold the top panel. Repair manuals and guides suggest you to use a putty knife to perform this procedure, but there is another method which is just as effective and will not harm the finish on the cabinet...

Everyone has a few dozen of these lying around...use them if you do not own a putty knife:
