Yesterday I was talking to a classmate that owns a MBP and I mentioned to him that Im planning on upgrading to 4GB of Ram. And he told me that I have to get it thru Apple or else it will void my warranty. Is there any truth to this or has my fellow classmate been misinformed?

he's misinformed. RAM is user replaceable, Apple provides instructions on how to do so. Buying bad Ram from someone else.. Apple won't warranty, that should be the manufacturer of that ram. BTW Apple ram in the machines I've worked on recently is all just Samsung.

Perhaps he was confused between memory and hard drives. For Macbook Pros, if you try to upgrade the hard drive, then you do void your warranty (though not for the regular Macbooks).
