Ok, so i know there is a very fine line on this subject, everyone has been given and giving different answers on this. It is about replacing the Hard Drive in a laptop. Ok, so the genius at the Apple Store in downtown Portland tell me about this authorized reseller/repair place around here, that will (and won't void the warranty) replace my HD. They speak highly of this place.. So, I email them, asking how much they will charge to install the hard drive (mind you, this is ONTOP of the price of the HD). They tell me $90! Plus, they said that if there is a problem with the computer, I would need to PAY again, to install the original HD, due to it not being OEM. My question is, following the iFix it guide, (and no security seals or special tools needed, I have security Torx and regular Torx screwdrivers) there is no point in paying, other than they fix what they break, rather than myself.? I mean if I pay $90 x 3 = applecare. I pay $90 to install, $90 to take out (when a problem arises), and then another $90 when i get the computer back.. I thought it would be like $40 to have someone put this in... here is the email.. Should I do it myself? I fixed my Xbox 360 that red ringed (after 9 months, it gave out..got E74 lol), so I am quite confident. I would've gotten the 320GB 7200RPM drive, but i got my Mac from the clearance store online when the new UMBPs' came out.
