If I upgrade my MBP with bigger HDD or just want a SSD, will that void my warranty?
no it will not.
well, an optibay... probably. but just an upgrade? no it will not.
The hard drive and RAM are fair game. Read the directions on how to do. Better yet, watch the videos on OWC to see how it is done. Make sure you have a Torx T6 driver.
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.
Apple Warranty: Installing Memory, Expansion Cards, User Installable Parts Does Not Void Warranty
From 2011 MacBook Pro User Guide:
no it doesnt. read the manual that came with ur macbook
It does not. Trust us.
Since it's not like 5 people have said this before me 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.
