if i upgrade my laptop will it void the Warranty?
this is what i found online but don't know if its true.
Generally, changes and/or upgrades should not void the warranty as long as it does not damage the machine during and after the process.
in 2019, the FTC began hosting panels and asking members of the public—including those from tech companies and repair-to-right advocates—for comments on repair restrictions in the market.
The effort led the FTC to start poking holes in the tech industry’s justifications for placing the repair restrictions on their devices. For example, the report finds that manufacturers provided no data “to support their argument that injuries are tied to repairs performed by consumers or independent repair shops.” In addition, US intellectual property law permits a product owner to circumvent software locks or make a copy of a program if it’s only done for repair purposes.
“Moreover, the specific changes that repair advocates seek to address manufacturer repair restrictions (e.g., access to information, manuals, spare parts, and tools) are well supported,” the report adds.
