Does upgrading the hard drive or memory void my warranty?

    I'm planning on purchasing the 13" MacBook Pro base model. If I decide to upgrade the hard drive and memory myself, will this void the warranty? I'm only asking because there's a couple of computer shops around my area that sell these components at a very reasonable price. Your help will greatly be appreciated. Thanks!

    If the RAM or hard drive fail you won't get a replacement through applecare.

    If its the brand new MacBook Pro, without the removable battery, I don't think the hard drive and RAM are user replaceable. The MacBook Pro in the user guide linked to is the one I have, which is a late 2007 model.

    If you do have to send it in through applecare I would be careful and put the old hardware back in. Because if for some odd reason they end up replacing the HD and it's the new one that you put in your out a HD... And that would be a bummer.
