Hello,

Looks like my MBP hard drive is bad.  I have a genius appointment tonight, just wondering do they do hard drive replacements in store of does this need to be shipped out?

    Hi S,

     

    HD replacements are very easy if you have the unibody style of MBP. It's right in the owners manual. I suspect it will depend on the individual you talk to at the Apple Store and how many people are waiting.

    Depends on whether the store is equipped to do drive replacements. If the computer is out of warranty they may not be willing to replace the drive. Again that depends on the store.

    Thanks for the response.  Hopefully I can get one today.

    This is a new MBP, only about 60 days old.  Going to complain pretty hard if they say something about a long wait since the MBP is so new and already have dirve failure.  Also, got another post on the wireless card dropping packats and lag spikes.  Seems to be a common problem on the new MBP, wondering if hardware or software.  If hardware might ask them to fix that as well.
