Hey, I was hoping to get some input on this matter. I purchased my mini 4 months ago and the HD just went to crap. I have an apple store here in my town, so its not too much of a hassle to take it down there and have them throw a new HD in it. That being said, how many of you would ask for a new mini? I honestly have no idea how long it takes to put in a new HD, but Im guessing they will want to keep my computer a few days. I'm a student preparing for a big test this friday before spring break starts, and I need a computer. So, would I be out of line just asking for a new one, given that this one is so new, so that I have something to study with this week? Thanks for any feedback.
