    Right now i have an early 2009 macbook pro 15". It has 4 gb ram and 320 gb hard drive. I found a momentus xt and 8 gb ram that i really want to put in it. My applecare plan doesnt expire until summer 2012. If I put these into my computer will I be voiding Applecare. I have heard different things and just want a definite answer. Thanks in advance.

    You're good to go. Just be careful when taking the top off as if your screwdriver slips, you will scratch the case which might make you cry.
