I was thinking about getting a Mac, but all 2 people I know who have them , have had their hard drives go out. One has had his go out twice in 6 months and lost all his data both times. I've also heard lots of second hand reports of others failing. I know this isn't exactly a good sample of people and could be a coincidence of bad luck, but after Googling, it looks like hard drives in Macs are dropping like flies in a room full of bug spray... and it looks like Mac isn't doing anything to make things right. I was really excited about getting a Mac next semester, but I don't need a computer that kills hard drives. Life is stressful enough. Has anyone heard what is causing this problem, if Mac IS in fact addressing the problem or even acknowledging it? Is there a fix to prevent it?
