Default MSI Wind - upgrading memory voids the warranty

For those who don't know, even though MSI has left a slot free for memory upgrades, the problem MSI faces is that it doesn't include a specific flap for the memory like every other laptop - you literally have to take the whole thing apart to get to the free memory slot (or hard drive if you want to do that too). The level of complexity in getting it back together correctly is far beyond "pop a lid off", yet leaving the slot free MSI must have realised that people will want to upgrade their machines? Major surgery like this naturally voids the warranty.

We asked MSI UK about this and was told that owners would just need to register the product before going ahead with the upgrade - all will remain good. However after much poking MSI for answers it seems that the "register with MSI" option is exclusive to UK customers. For once it seems those of us in Blighty have a better deal! Excuse me while I promptly fall off my chair.
