It's easy to replace the internal HDD and it won't invalidate the warranty.

Here's the exact drive that I used and it's been flawless. (mine was $60 shipped but all HDD prices suck right now) Also NewEgg is a great resource even if you don't purchase the drive there as you can click on the feedback tab and type in 'PS3' to see if people have used the model specifically as a PS3 HDD upgrade.
If you have the luxury, you'll want to back-up everything that you can to an external drive and then load it back onto the new drive post-upgrade. If you don't mind re-downloading your games then just backup your saves to a USB stick and/or the cloud. (locked saves suck if you don't have Plus cloud storage)
