    Anyone? I'm one of those holding out for the 17" and was wondering if the Hard Drive is user accessible without voiding the warranty. I know the battery has to be sent back in to replace, but I would like to swap out the hard drive down the road and would hate sending it in to do it.

    I would say it would be safe to assume no, since the hard drive is accessed through the same panel as the battery.

    IT IS user accesible, and changing it WILL NOT void the warranty.

    Same with the RAM

    but changing the Battery WILLvoid the warranty.
