    So i'm getting an new MBP this weekend and i was wondering if the RAM was still user replaceable without voiding warranty?

    I'm getting the lower end model and hopefully upgrading the ram

    You could have easily found the answer yourself. iFixit has a take apart and even Apple puts their owner's manuals with instructions online.

    Of course. Why would they give instructions on how to replace it if it was taboo?

    Apple provides you explicit instructions on how to replace the RAM and the hard drive. :D

    i know this must be a dumb question again.

    does it void warranty? i want to get the low end pro and upgrade everything myself later on.

    lost the ability to read, bud? It's been explicitly stated thrice in this thread alone.

    I'll give it to you directly. No! :D The only thing is that Apple is not responsible for your RAM (e.g. anything wrong with your RAM, it's not covered), other than that, the warranty is still good.

    Since Apple uses DDR3 memory now, you'll only be saving ~$10... It seems at the moment buying RAM from Apple isn't a bad idea.
