    Actually thats a pretty good deal
    00GB 2.5" Seagate Momentus 5400RPM ATA Notebook drive with 8MB Cache - New with 5 Year Seagate Warranty. (SEAST9100823A) more info... $199.00
    Labor and transfer charge is included that is a good deal, most computer stores would charge more, labor costs can get expensive for PBs and for data transfer, that kind of stuff is very time consuming.

    MacResQ is a longtime, well respected company who know their Macs (and iPods) inside and out. Recommended.

    Am I missing something?

    The price of the Seagate 100 GB is US$229, that's fair (we sell for CAN$288)
    The $289 service includes the drive plus 2-way air shipping (a special shipping carton provided), 24 hour turnaround on the work, data transfer, and the labour of installation.
    That's a fair deal.

    12" powerbooks have to be the worst powerbook to get into.
    i've fixed two in my life, and i don't ever want to touch them again :(
