    hello again folks...

    now that the refresh is finally here, I've decided to once again attempt to buy a baseline imac...

    I tried a couple months back, but they were plagued with issues. One feature that I didn't like was the noisy hard drives:

    I replaced it 3 times...the last 2 being noisy hitachi hard drives...

    it seems the western digital drive is the least noisy...the problem is making sure I'm gonna get one...

    can I call up apple and ask for a specific hard drive?

    I'm tired of rolling the dice on a computer that's going to be in my life for 5+ years...

    You can always ask but I doubt they can do such thing. If it turns out to be noisy, take it to the nearest Apple Store and ask if they can replace it with WD drive

    I don't see why they would, seeing as when I went back all they offered was a refund...

    the problem is that there is technically nothing wrong with it...

    I don't understand why they insist on using 3 different brands of hard drives...

    Because one drive manufacturer may not be able to handle the demand.

    I suppose...:eek:

    well anywho, guess I'll just go for it...

    calling them up will most likely be a waste of time...

    wish me luck...

    and thanks...
