Does adding 3rd party RAM (ie: not from Apple, from someone like Crucial) yourself (after you bought the computer) void the warranty? I'm sure I read somewhere that some Macs have their warranty voided if you add extra RAM, I just couldn't remember which ones.


Thanks for the help :)

Nope - It's user serviceable or some jargon along those lines, so you’re good to go...

Unless -- the RAM you install dies and takes the MBP with you, then Apple will probably not acknowledge your warranty.

Well... The RAM would have to be seriously screwed up to not only die, but to kill the whole computer, too. And if it did, you should be able to remove it and Apple would be none the wiser.

Is there any way to get the Type of RAM apple uses and if so what is it and where to find it?
