I don't know about the US, but in the UK the Apple Care agreement says that the RAM is "Customer Upgradeable" and doesn't void your warranty. :/

Did you not even research before spending $200 unnecessarily?


Ouch!! Lol that's have to be a kick in the head

Excuse me but I wanted to make sure that I did NOT VOID my Warranty by putting NON-APPLE-APPROVED-MEMORY in to this Mac. After all I still have an EXTENDED WARRANTY with my APPLE CARE AGREEMENT that goes until November 2013! So shut the blank-et-e-blank Up! Just FYI! Thread Closed.

Well, from a quick Google search, you could've upgraded the RAM yourself (aka bought it on newegg or another place, and installed it yourself) and still be covered under AppleCare. Or, if you really wanted to, install it, and then remove it if you had to send it in for repairs or replacement... You just chose a very expensive option, but regardless, enjoy your RAM.

buying non apple approved ram does NOT void your warranty

I've had my mac repaired just fine using my warranty with the custom ram inside

oh and I will indeed be ordering my SSD from Apple.com by the way! Just FYI! Thread Remains Closed!


Cool, at the end of the day it's your money quite literally going down the drain!

However, when you grow some common sense feel free to mosey on by to your online retailer for IT goodies and save and spend money on a good SSD the sensible way! :D

I really don't understand how people can spend so much money on something that you can get better for cheaper? Is it because its approved by apple? It's no wonder apple has so much money, they just continue to rip people off.

why would I spend $100 from Newegg when I would not know for sure if I was buying the correct type of Ram or NOT? I

Thats why you do research before buying something. besides apple doesnt manufacture their ram!

Most

If your preference is for drooling over iStuff over receiving actual advice you're probably on the wrong website. Perhaps macrumours would be more up your street.

Not even the general population at Macrumors would suggest buying memory from Apple.
