Apple Announces HDD Replacements for MacBooks

If you own a black or white Macbook, purchased between 2006 and 2007 and have been experiencing hard drive problems, you're in luck; Apple is replacing failing hard drives on these machines, even if your warranty has run out.

Apple has determined that a very small percentage of hard drives used in MacBooks sold between May '06 and December '07 may fail under certain conditions. A page on the company's support site lists the affected models as white and black 13-inch Macbooks with 1.83HGz, 2GHz or 2.16GHz processors and 60GB, 80GB, 100GB, 120GB and 160GB hard drives.

If your MacBook exhibits a flashing question mark when you switch it on, you're advised to take your laptop to your local Apple store.
