    Hello

    I remember with my last MBP I was voiding warranty by opening it and putting in my own Ram/// Is this still true of the new ones?

    I just purchased a new MBP with 2GB ram and realized I probably want 4... so I was going to buy two sticks...

    Please help

    RAM is classed as a 'user serviceable part' so no, you won't be voiding your warranty by upgrading it yourself.

    This was never true. RAM has always been considered a user serviceable part.

    No, you weren't. Did you break anything? No? Then it's not void.

    Where the heck does this misconception come from, anyway?

    Thanks all. This misconception comes from the wording on the MBP that I purchased in MArch or April of 2006. There was a line that inferred you would be voiding warranty if unscrewing anything behind the battery port. I always believed it...

    I'm sure a few lines down it would outline that RAM did not fall into this category ;)

    The instructions are in the user guide, and that's legally written permission.
