Am I able to replace my stock HDD in MBP with SSD?



I am currently scouting around for a good SSD to replace the stock Toshiba 500GB SATA in my Unibody 15.4" (Late 2010).

I have read on some of the answers here that it is possible to replace the 2.5" HDD with an SSD as long as it is SATA and same 2.5" size. Is this correct? Would I void the warranty?

Also: I called Apple Support the other day and they told me that replacing the stock HDD with an SSD requires doing something to the logic board and can only be selected during the configuration process before purchase. So in other words "no, you cannot install a 2.5", you have to change the logic board". Which I think is inaccurate.

Any help will be greatly appreciated :)
