    Is this information available anywhere and I am missing it? I think that I am going to go for one of the low end MBPs if I can change out the HDD/RAM at will.

    I finally did have a Mac need service, and I am a little reluctant to get a laptop and immediately gut it if it violates the warranty.

    Very Good point does this spell the end for user upgradeable parts, with the new battery?

    I wonder about this as well. I am selling my 09 White Macbook to get the new MBP 13 with FW800. It will match up better with my Mini which has the same FW800. However, I always upgrade my HD and RAM so I need to know if it's still as simple as in the White version.

    Cheers,

    The 17-inch MacBook Pro allowed user to replace HDD and RAM without warranty so I'm assuming it's the same with the whole lineup now.

    my initial guess is that you will still be able to with out voiding the warranty. they cant take it away after they gave us a taste!!:mad:;)
