Building notes, projects, and occasional rants

Happy, happy, joy, joy

So there is this batch of Seagate disk drives that has a high (or more accurate above normal) rate of defects:

The faulty drives are all Seagate 2.5" drives that are manufactured in China, with a Firmware revision of 7.01. They are also all SATA interface. No other drives seem (at this stage) to be affected.

Guess what my Macbook Pro 17" 1st generation has:

I have good backups, but still... Time to find out if there is a Apple program to replace the drives.
