    Question as above really, fancy upgrading my macbook RAM to 2GB from 1GB but was unsure if it invalidates the warranty?

    Also if I do upgrade the RAM does the macbook do anything the first time its booted up like a PC to say it recognises the new RAM?

    It does not void your Mac's warranty. I'd like to know why you thought it would. It's a very common misconception.

    There is no visible memory check on boot upon successful installation but you can look under Apple -> About This Mac once you get to the desktop.

    as posted above Apple classify the Ram and Hard-drive on their Macbooks as "user replaceable parts" and even produce a PDF guide to replacing both. Just search apple.com/support for the guides.
