    Be forewarned that if you replace it with a faster drive, your battery life will lessen.

    sometimes considerably, so do watch out.

    you can also buy an external enclosure for your old drive, and use it as a spare or an extra. this came in handy after the blackout when the power-on surge fried an internal HD in my house...

    Your warranty and Applecare expires as well, I think.
