    Hi all,

    Just wanted to know if:

    1) Upgrading the internal hard-disk of a macbook pro will void the Apple care.

    2) If YES, then is there a way NOT to void the warranty?

    Thanks in advance guys/gals

    PS (also additional info on WHICH HD to get would be appreciated too)

    i.e. will a 7200RPM 200G Harddisk sap the battery faster than a 5400rpm?

    Yes, it will void your AppleCare.

    You could probably get a certified Apple Service Center to upgrade it for you, if you ask nicely or know someone.

    And a 7200RPM drive will drain the battery faster, compared to a 5400RPM drive.
