Have I voided my warranty by adding RAM to a classic MBP?

    I upgraded from 1 GB to 2 GB of memory with my first generation Macbook Pro (bought in Feb 2006). I bought the extra 1 GB stick from Crucial and put it in myself. Now my MBP needs to go to repair. I have Apple Care. Will they refuse to repair it when they see that I upgraded the RAM myself?

    You're fine. Upgrading RAM is perfectly OK under the warranty.

    No your warranty is fine. At worst you'll have to put the original RAM back in.

    Before or after I send it to Apple care? I was going to send it in the way it is, with both the 1 GB that came with it and the 1 GB I put in in the other slot. Will they send it back and ask me to take the extra 1 GB I put in out?

    You are fine, don't replace the memory and send it as is. It is a user-serviceable part that is even covered in the manual.
