My Apple MacBook which I bought around October last year has developed some chronic diseases. It suffers from discolouration, an erratic trackpad button, an erratic P key and cerise sur le gateau a crashed hard disk.
Yes, you have correctly read the above. My 80Gb inside the MacBook has crashed. But, for once, I was lucky (?) because I had backuped everything on an external Firewire hard drive, a Macway Minipartner.
As you can guess, I use my MacBook professionally everyday. I use it at home and at work. It has become an essential part of my work flow.
I went to LCI today and the after sales service personnel told me that they are going to replace the hard disk and they will replace the entire top case of the MacBook hence solving the discolouration problem, the erratic keyboard and the erratic trackpad button!
(Someone told me once that you should never ever buy a generation 1 product. Now I know why! :-) )
It seems that everything will be covered by the 1-year warranty :-)
Meanwhile, I’m back to Linux. And it’s cool. In fact, I’m busy upgrading my Kubuntu to Edgy Eft right now :-)
