I'm starting to wonder (and worry) about Macs & Hard Drives. I think there is something going on with the way Apples run that is making these things completely crash and die. I have been using macs for about 5 years now. I personally owned a titanium powerbook for 3 of those years and had the hard drive die twice. Once was 8 days after my applecare was up and they basically raised the middle finger at me. I have worked in an office where 2 drives died on computers that were less than a year old and 1 die shortly after a year. The owner of the business (mac user) had his powerbook drive die and my only other coworker at that time had it happen on his old powerbook (the black ones) and on his 12" model more recently as well. I currently run a business with a friend of mine and we bought a 20" iMac this past summer. the 1.8 model. For no apparent reason last month, hard drive completely died. I just saw another post on here from a person that seems to have the same problem with his 20" iMac that we just had at the office... A designer at one of the companies we deal with had his 15" powerbook drive die on him during it's 12th month of ownership. These are about 90% of the mac owners i know...all have had this problem at one time or another. Something is not right.... If you've had a hard drive die on you that was reletively new please leave a response whether it's telling the story or leaving a note that it's happened to you. I am starting to think that there is some kind of problem that happens with all macs and hard drives eventually....it just doesnt seem right to see and hear of this happening so often. This could be grounds for some sort of class action suit.
