    I am thinking of upgrading my drive to a SSD.

    My MBP is 2 years old and Applecare runs out in a year.

    If i install a new drive does it invalidate the Applecare?

    Only on the hard drive, and even then, only if you don't have the original drive inside when it goes in for repairs.

    Same thing, just put the optical drive back in if you have to bring it in for a repair.

    I think the ODD can't be put back in without leaving evidence that it was removed.
