Apple Looking Into MacBook Hard Drive Issues

Although it doesn't appear to be a widespread problem, Apple said it has "received a few reports that some MacBook consumer notebooks may have hard drive issues, and we're looking into it." Apple didn't say which drives could be affected, but UK-based Retrodata reported earlier this year that Seagate 2.5-inch drives with firmware revision 7.01 are causing potential data loss.

THey DO "just work." At least more often than the competition

But no one said they're perfect. Machines are machines.

Check the customer satisfaction ratings. Apple still ranks highest in the industry. It has to tackle production challenges brought on by greater demand, etc.

Thanks for playing, though.

Maybe that's why someone in mcse class (oh the there's like at least 3-4 Apple fans in this microsoft class) ordered their macbook pro and it arrived yesterday and has a Fuji hard drive inside.

Lol... I'm currently staring at one of the faulty drives... Seagate 7.01fw

And it's DEAD.. all of a sudden, loud click clank and after a couple seconds drive dies.

I´ve got one of the supposedly faullty drives... my mac has been working for over thirteen months now and it has had a bumoy ride, yet i am still to have any problems with my drive.
Still, free replacements are always welcome
