I have a couple quick questions before purchasing a new MP, a 6-core Westmere. I'm usually nervous about buying computer products from non-apple, but the total cost of my customization was a little higher than I would be willing to fork out, leading me to find the (reputable as per posts recommending the site) OWC supplier. 1) Would installing 3rd party memory and internal hard drives void Applecare warranty? 2) How easy is it for a non-techie to install memory and internal HDDs without a great chance of ruining something? Are there any good guides/explanations/tutorials for said procedures that can be recommended? 3) Would this: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other World Computing/1333D3W4M12K/ be the most appropriate/RELIABLE memory alternative to the memory offered on Apple's customization page? (it's like 600 dollars cheaper...) Would it essentially be the same? I'm looking for 3x4Gb memory... 4) Through the OWC website, can anyone recommend the best (I'm looking for reliability here, not like the fastest but most comparable to Apple's HDD option) HDDs for a 1Tb internal drive for Bay 2 (this would act as a backup drive for the HDD in Bay 1 that comes standard) and also a 2Tb internal drive for Bay 3 (this would be a "storage" hard drive). Is this even the most appropriate setup for what I am looking for? (Bay 1: "main" hard drive, Bay 2: constantly backing up Bay 1, Bay 3: dump stuff for storage) 5) I am also tossing around the possibility of getting an internal blu-Ray burner for optical drive 2, either now or in the future... Can anyone recommend a product or two to look at (from the OWC website of course)? Would this be easy (if at all) to install? I just need some help in planning out my purchase so it will fall down into a lower price range and don't know much more than what I have been reading about them and researching info in regards to my questions. Any answers/solutions/suggestions are very much appreciated! I hope to make my purchase (at least at apple store) later today.
