View Full Version : Hardrive died :(

My Macbooks newish Hitachi 100GB drive just died. Moral of the story is backup, backup, backup. It was only a few months old and died for no apparent reason. Fortunately my user folder and all my documents and , thankfully, my Windows image were all backup up. Windows and all it's software is a pain to install so I'm happy I don't have to do that. Now all I have to do is warranty my drive, replace a few apps and update OS X again.

Now, does anyone have any experience with Hitachi drives for the Macbook. Did I just get a dud or should I look at a Seagate Momentus or Fujitsu instead. Doesn't the Seagate have a motion sensor thing that kernel panics the new Intel macs?
