    I read the applecare protection term:
    this is a limitation
    b. Limitations. The Plan does not cover:
    (i) Installation, removal or disposal of the Covered Equipment, or installation, removal, repair, or
    maintenance of non-Covered Equipment (including accessories, attachments, or other devices such
    as external modems) or electrical service external to the Covered Equipment;

    So i still do not understand why upgrade the hard drive or memory By myself do not violated the protection plan. Since I do "removal or install"....just confused the "covered" and "non-covered" things

    I think that means that if you want Apple to upgrade your HD, they will not do that under AppleCare unless the HD doesn't work.

    No, the hard drive and ram are considered user replaceable parts, even though you have to take the bottom case off to get to them. Anything else is not replaceable. It gets ambiguous with all of the legalese but I've confirmed this with an in store employee when I ordered my MBP in store.

    It means that apple will not install remove or dispose of your MacBook pro nor will they service the hard drive you bought from newegg or the dlink router hooked up to your MacBook pro.

    So just confirming. If you have bought AppleCare. The only items the user can replace and still be under AppleCare warranty is the hard drive and memory?

    AppleCare won't cover user installed ram/hdd but that doesn't mean your warranty is voided. Apple just covers the rest of the machine (ie what they sold you).
