    If you add ram to your mbp or pb yourself, does it void the warranty?

    Adding RAM does not void the warranty on any Mac, except possibly the Mac mini, and even then, it's only void if you damage it in the process (unless you're a certified Apple tech), or install RAM that somehow kills something else. Think of it like adding a turbocharger to a car. If the rear suspension breaks, the warranty on that part isn't void because of the turbo (although some dealers may argue this), but if the cylinder head goes, you're SOL.

    Thanks for your reply. I just got off the phone with Apple and they said the same thing. The guy tried to talk me into buying a MBP. He told me they started shipping them yesterday, and that he was waiting for the 17" version due latter in the year.

    Yeah, as if a sales dude has the information to preannounce a product.

    Also, a nice sales tactic to discuss how you don't want what you're selling because a better one is coming out later on.

    I would like to meet someone or hear from someone that has thier MBP shipping now. It would give me a little glimpse of sunshine.
