    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?

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