Hey guys, I was recently super psyched to get a Vertex 2 SSD to put in my 17" MBP. I am just about to buy the SSD from Canada Computers, pretty much in the car already. I've seen so, so many times that people have done this without voiding their warranty and AppleCare, because as you guys say, it's a user replaceable part. Anyways, I just called the Yorkdale Apple store to make sure, and they said replacing the hard drive would void my warranty AND AppleCare. They said under no circumstances can I change anything in the computer even if it's an Apple product with the service done at an Apple retailer. I asked a genius at the Apple store one time I went in and he said it could be done, but now they seem to have changed their mind. I've seen 100x on this forum that this wouldn't be the case, and I've also seen tonnes of people with aftermarket SSD's in their computers -do they all have their warranties voided? What gives? Does this mean I can't touch my computer for 3 years? I definitely wouldn't have got a Mac if I knew that it had to stay the same way (HDD and RAM) for the entire length of the AppleCare, especially if they don't even know the protocol themselves. What should I do? I leave for school in two days so I need to get this sorted out ASAP .
