    Hello,

    I have got a replacement from my first MacBook Alu, which have got a broken Superdrive. That MB has the 9c8c display. The new MB I got do a very crappy sound, like a tic tac clock, from the HDD, a Fujitsu one. Also, the screen is the worse, from LG. Now I have a Macbook with a inferior screen than the first and a noisy hard drive. Should I ask for a second replacement, insisting in the 9c8c display and a non-Fujitsu HDD, or should I ask for a refound??

    This is the first time I buy an Apple computer and I haven't got good impressions.

    PD: Sorry for my english, i'm a product of the spanish education system.

    Definitely ask for a replacement or go to the store and show them your issues. If the HDD is as bad as your describe it, it will probably get worse over time... I would take care of it right away. Mine makes a humming noise constantly, and running clicks but not VERY BAD...

    Also I have to note that with Xbench the drive constantly obtains some poor MB/s writes/read than other MB with the same configuration (including the exactly HDD model).

    My ALU MacBook made a metallic "clink" sound every few seconds that drove me insane. I was planning on upgrading to a 250g HD and went ahead and replaced the fujitsu with a Samsung 250 7200rpm. The clink went away.
