Not sure if this should go in the MS Guru thread <br><br>Just got back from the Apple Store "packed with people as normal" I called before and made reservations for the Genius Bar at 12:15 , got there at 12:00 and fought my way through the crowd too get to the Genius Bar in the back of the store. They took me in early now thats service , the Genius was fast and courteous , he looked at my Mac Mini 2nd gen G4 . Yep needs a new HD estimated cost 270.00 but I had it covered so my cost is 0.00 Apple Care just paid for itself and din sum<br><br>I wanted to hang around the store but Kaimana was hungry so we had lunch at Bubba Gump<br><br>
Cajun shrimp sound tasty. I'll hafta try some of those. <br><br>EDIT: just spied the bourbon mahi mahi ..... a definite must.<br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by margadagio on 09/05/08 05:32 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

Those tiny hard drives just don't last very long. I'm on the second hard drive on my (ancient) iBook G4 (which also was covered under the warranty). Good that you didn't have to pay for the repair. I have an extra one in the desk drawer for the next time, when I'll have to do it myself. <br><br>
I think its the heat thats killing those drives IMO - Them Minis don't have much for ventilation much like the toasty lap warmer Mac Books. Place them in un - air conditioned rooms where ambient temps can get to 90F with little circulation. My guess could lead to HD over heating ? ?<br><br>In fact one very hot afternoon my iMac just shut down with the flashing question mark over a folder icon - I waited half an hour and re-booted with no problem ?? go figure<br><br>
