It won't void your warranty; and it's actually fairly easy to replace the drive.

See the detailed instructions on how to replace the drive on Page 29 in the Hardware Reference Manual:   http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/action.process/public/psi/manualsDisplay/?sp4ts.oid=5272027&javax.portlet.action=true&spf_p.tpst=psiContentDisplay&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&spf_p.prp_psiContentDisplay=wsrp-interactionState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c03565546%257CdocLocale%253Den_US&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

Note that it uses a 3.5" drive, so you can easily install a much larger drive (up to 4TB with currently available drives) ... or you can install a pair of 2.5" drives, which would let you use an SSD for speed plus a larger drive for storage.

That's cool.
