    I was wondering if the new 17" macbook pro has access to the hard drive like the 15" one does..

    Because I want to get a SSD, but they cost too much now. So I'm planning to purchase one and change it in the macbook pro when the price drops for the SSD.

    It's not officially user-serviceable like the 15-inch but you could easliy just unscrew the bottom to change the hard drive. You will void your warranty though.

    I dont think it will void your warranty unless you break anything. Apple mentions on the website that you can upgrade it yourself (see attachment)

    You can upgrade the hard drive and RAM yourself. Dont touch the battery,
