Right so I have a friend MacBook Pro here, it looks like the Hard Drive has failed as it will not boot. You simply get the Folder with ? inside. Disk Utility also fails to detect the hard drive. The MacBook Pro is a 13-inch, Mid 2012 and has the following hard drive 500GB 5400-rpm hard drive. I tried to get him to purchase an SSD but he was not interested. He wants another Hard Drive either 500gb or 1tb, but which brand/models are best for the MacBook Pro? All suggestions welcome!
