    Nice. Looks like a bit of trade off in performance. About 1/2-2/3 the speed of the OEM stick. But you have someone to stand behind it and support you.

    No, it doesn't not void the warranty.

    I have a 2011 Macbook Pro and have been successfully able to replace the ram, hard drive and battery. Just to test my understanding about the new MacBook pros:
    1) all ram is soldered in for both 2015 & 2017 versions.
    2) all batteries are glued in for both 2015 & 2017 versions (how difficult is a replacement for an average user?). iFixit suggests use of a solvent or heat...
    3) The ssd's in the 2015 MacBook pro are potentially replaceable, however the 2017 MacBook pro are soldered.

    Do I have that about right?

    2016 and 2017 are soldered ssds and ram. 2011-2015 retinas have soldered ram and socketed ssd. But SSD is unique.

    Well many of us are not in the US, so not sure how that works in other countries

    You break it you own it. If you bring in a user upgraded Mac that you upgraded yourself and they can tie that upgrade to damage to the mac, then your warranty is worthless. The law states its only limited to what you touched but since laptops are so delicate, its not much of a stretch for apple to void nearly the entire warranty.
