    hi,

    i just ordered my first mac, a base spec macbook with 3 years applecare for £648 with the HE discount, i intend to upgrade to 4gig ram from crucial but was wandering if this will affect my applecare warranty in anyway?

    cheers in advance,

    dave.

    It should not, after all Apple has made memory a " user upgradeable " feature.

    In any case, just keep the old 'stock' memory, in case there is a problem you can swap it back to verify the memory is not the cause of the problem.

    Then call Apple for support and the original memory will be back in the computer.

    It is also a good idea on the off chance that the machine is replaced during the repair process, it would suck to lose your ram upgrade because Apple gave you a new machine.

    Thanks for asking this question and thanks for the answers - I did exactly the same thing as the OP and was wondering about this.

    Thanks
