My Mac Powerbook drive crashed recently. I quickly found out what a hassle it is when you rely only on Mac. First of all, it was a major pain to open up the laptop to replace the drive. I’ve opened a lot of laptops in my time and this was one of the most difficult to work with.
Then, the tech guy at the Apple store admitted to me that the MacBook Pro and Powerbook line of laptops just get too hot, and hard drives fail. Last week one of my IT friends calls me to say that he had 2 Mac hard drive failures that week.
I don’t know about you but I’ve rarely had a drive in a non-Mac computer fail on me. In fact, I don’t know that I’ve ever had a hard drive crash. I have 7 computers in my home and have had a multitude of different brands over the years. Could it just be a coincidence with me? Perhaps, but I don’t think so.
