    The MBP considerations continue. What components can be upgraded via aftermarket sources, and is it a viable route?

    Hard drive and ram are the only two. I think Apple considers both of them "user replaceable" on the current models.

    MBPs use both standard HDDs and RAM, and both are easy to replace (even if a misinformed tech at the apple store says otherwise). Neither will void your warranty
