    If I upgrade my MBP with bigger HDD or just want a SSD, will that void my warranty?

    As a technician who makes these calls, I can also agree with everyone else and say no, it doesn't void the warranty. Obviously, anything not installed by Apple won't be covered under the warranty.

    Since it's not like 5 people have said this before me :rolleyes: no, HD and RAM are user replaceable.

    It will void any hard-drive related issues from the warranty. So if you swap your hard drive, then that drive will not be covered by AppleCare or the 1-year warranty. Furthermore, if you swap the original back, that will not be covered either.

    However, the rest of the laptop will still be covered by the warranty. The same applies to RAM.

    But of course if you screw something up while replacing the hard drive or the RAM, then you voided the warranty.
