So I did it... I dumped the PC and dove right into a Macbook Pro, in all of its glory. It was the easiest migration I have ever done, and I was thrilled for 1 month exactly. Then it happened... It hung on wake up from sleep... and then would not reboot no matter what... I spent hours on the phone with support... NOTHING.. Single user mode, disk repair, you name it DONE. Drive will not boot. Went to the Apple store and low and behold they booted Leopard from a removable drive and we were able to see my disk and all of its data. However after two hours they could not make the drive boot either, and had no drive to replace it with. I went home in dismay... and then it hit me.. if the data can be seen go get a new disk, install leopard and get the data. So I went to Fry's and got a bigger better drive than what came with my 30 day old system. Apple put in a Hitachi Drive, being from the world of PC... I know that Hitachi is the worst drive on the market... I installed the new drive, booted from the install disk, installed Leopard, and low and behold the system was up. Now the issue of rebuilding a months worth of work hit me... I was again in utter dismay... Then I said what the hell... I opened up the Migration Assistant, and plugged the bad drive into a SATA to USB case, and ran the tool. About one hour later... I was literally in shock. The Migration Assistant in essence did the unthinkable. It 100% totally rebuilt everything from the crappy Hitachi drive, and my system now looked identical to what it did before this happened. Everything works flawlessly, as if this nightmare was nothing but just that. Mind you, I did this on my own... with the help of another PC user... we have both never owned a MAC before... we were both in shock that this worked. We are also Linux users, so the lack of the Windows Registry and DLL files is not a new concept. But to see a tool work this well was utterly amazing to the both of us. I thought it only right to post this, as I have found out from Apple that there have been many bad Hitachi drives at this point... So others may find this useful. I am now again a Happy Mac user!!! I must also say the support that I did get from Apple was amazing in every regard, they bent over backwards to help me out. I am used to Dell support which is quite different. Apple is really an amazing company! I am sorry someone made the choice to use a Hitachi Drive, but I do understand the logic.
