    Hey all,

    My 13'' MBP is starting to act up and it's time to take it in for service. The display is not living up to expectation, but worse are issues waking up from sleep and unexplainable pinwheeling (during low cpu/memory/disk usage periods, etc)

    Anyway, based on previous experience with apple, i suspect they'll resort to the catchall new logic board solution they usually go to. My concern is that I've upgraded my HDD to a 500GB WD. Usually I would drop the stock 250 in there for the purpose of having it serviced and just put my 500 back when I got the machine back. The issue now is that the 250 is being used in another machine, and this would be a giant headache. It's possible to do...but it would be a total nightmare.

    Any thoughts on how apple might treat this and if I can safely assume my 500GB drive will come back with my machine?

    You may want to put your original HD in it, just in case they want to keep it. You never know....
