    I know that you can change the memory under warranty but does exchanging the internal hard drive void the warranty? The computer is only few days old but already itching to put in a 320 gb Scorpio drive to completely duplicate my desktop iMac files.

    Ugh, this again... Did you search?

    Short answer: If you break something while you're inside the unit, your warranty is voided. If you do everything properly, your warranty is intact.

    There are no seals or stickers or anything that get broken when opening the case, so as long as you don't do anything stupid you're fine.

    The good side of the grass.
    Be very careful. Do not strip any wee screws. Put shielding back exactly way you found it. Make it work without any signs of abuse and you're fine.

    It only voids warranty if you knacker it up in any way.
