    Watch this video if you like to tinker on your mac:

    You know that warning label about voiding your warranty? Peel it off if you feel like it, according to the FTC. The lawyer is specialized in lemon law and seems to say the you can use third party parts and SERVICES on cars and ELECTRONICS. The Mag Moss act seems to prohibit that:

    I don’t think such stickers exist on modern Macs. Yes, they can tell if you’ve tampered with it, but there is no seal especially for that purpose.

    Isn't there the "blue stuff" on the screws?

    (Yes, that is the scientific term)

    I think that’s mostly to keep them from working loose, similar to Loctite blue?

    watch one Youtube video, and we all believe it..

    The warranty may not be void because you technically did not always open it up, just peeling/ripping the sticker to give that 'effect'' but its not up to you to say will it still be serviceable.

    i.e if you rip "warranty" type sticker on a case, i know someone's been trying to get at the screws underneath

    True,, there is no seals, but it would provide a way for Apple to decide if they should service a product.

    "may void your warranty" is not he same as "will void" if you break said seal.. Regardless, there s no point in sticking these stickers al over the place like an advertisement of the sort, but companies ignore it anyway.
