    I just wanted to clarify something. Originally I thought I read on these forums somewhere that if you upgrade the RAM to a 3rd party hardware source then it will void the 3 year applecare warranty.

    However, when I googled the topic this morning every post I saw said that the warranty is still fine since the RAM is a "user-upgradable" part. Most of those posts I saw were from 2006 or earlier.

    So has something changed in the last yr, or can I still upgrade the RAM and keep my applecare warranty intact?

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't... but I would keep the Apple RAM it comes with and put that in if you ever have to take it in, lol.

    It does not void Applecare. Memory is a user upgradable part.
