    Has anybody tried upgrading the standard Hard drive, Processor or Graphics card in their MBP? I realize that the two latter ones are soldered onto the logic board, but it could still be possible

    The hard drive is an easy upgrade, the GPU, as the previous post says is in no way upgradeable.

    I've done hard drive and RAM. You really don't want to mess with anything else.

    HDD & RAM is upgradeable like always. The rest is soldered, and there ARE ways to upgrade them, but I personally wouldn't take any chances in that area. Look it up.
