OK, so here is what I purchased from a vendor:

I will be receiving two of these. So now my question is two-fold: What do I need to do to correctly install these into my laptop and would doing so void my warranty?

    3) Here are the two ssd's:


    As there is only the need to open the ram compartment, it does not violate the warranty!
    The raid should be configured in the bios, but you can also use some cloning program that does and this conversion and at the same time clone the hd!
