    Hey Guys,

    Coupled with some WiFi troubles, my Macbook Pro's HDD has been making some strange clicking noises lately, but about 15 minutes ago it made a noise that I can only describe as a motorcycle motor sound. Pretty weird. So I shut it off and back on again and nothing was lost (so far). I backed up everything a few days ago so if it does kick the bucket, I'm safe.

    Are my HDDs days numbered? Should I upgrade it it an SSD?

    I've been thinking about getting a 256GB Corsair Neutron SSD for a while now and this might be the perfect excuse to get one.

    Yes, it's dying. I'd recommend a Samsung more than any other ssd

    Definitely sounds like its on its way out. The main thing is that you've backed up.
