I have experienced these problems since almost a year ago (August, 2009) when I first bought this laptop. It is a MacBook Pro 13" Unibody. I bought it brand new and it has always had a bit of a hiccup issue--leading me to believe it is the harddrive itself. I have tried reformats, disk repairs, the works. I am just wondering if by now if it is known that some of the MBP 13"s may have had a fault HD issue or something? Do you think Apple will take this into consideration? Any advice helps. Thanks ahead of time.
