    Hello,

    Newbie here... I just did a online chat with an apple representative (apple.com), and was told that only upgrading RAM would NOT void warranty! Upgrading the stock 500gb HDD to SSD would void the warranty though, she claimed ... Is this true? I have been googling and searching, and I have gotten mixed opinions on this matter ?!? ...Be gentle:D

    If Apple says something voids their warranty....it likely does. So what?

    Put in an an SSD and keep the original drive. It there is a problem where you have to take the machine to Apple and it is still under warranty or AppleCare, swap the SSD back out for the HD. That should only take around 15 minutes.

    In the meantime you will breathed a new life into the machine. Put in a Samsung EVO 840 1TB drive and use the Trim Enabler software to turn on trim.

    You will smile every time the machine boots more quickly or loads an app in double quick time.
