MacBook Pro Hard Drive upgrade questions

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to upgrade the 250GB drive in my MB134LL/A to a 500GB drive. I purchased this drive to do it with. I do NOT want to void my warranty. How can I do this? I have heard that Apple repair centers charge an arm and/or a leg to do this. I am fully confident that I can do it myself, but what can I do? If I take it to a local place like Geek Squad and pay them the $49 for it, will it still void my warranty, or will it be find since they are an "authorized warranty repair center"?
