My macbook HDD died an hour ago, and I can't reboot and I get the folder with the question mark when I attempt to boot up. Doing some quick research, it looks like there is a cluster of HDD failures associated with the original macbook using a particular seagate HDD. I bought my macbook in June 2006, and I'm sure I have that particular drive. I guess I was lucky mine lasted for 2 years. Anyway I'm planning to get a new one tomorrow at the local apple store. So my question is do the latest Macbook still uses this particular drive. I'm hesitant on buying another one and have this issue hanging over me. Other than that I've had 3 other macs (all desktop) in 20 years, and I have not had any premature failure of any kind.
