    Does anyone else have an issue with the HDD in their 13" MBPs? I had a 2.26ghz 2009 model and it had a toshiba drive that was silent. Just got a mid 2010 model with a hitachi drive and I can hear it making noise and its really loud when the head parks if you move the laptop. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Ya I got the 13'' 2010 MBP with the Hitachi HDD when it gets moved around I can hear the the
    head parking sometimes, other than that it is a pretty quiet Drive .

    Certain noises can indicate future failure. What does SMART and other programs indicate about hard drive health?
