Apple makes it even harder to change your own hard drive

| May 13, 2011 | Reply

Steve Jobs doesn’t like when you repair or upgrade your own machine. No matter what product it is, Apple likes to make it difficult to do any repair or upgrade. Now they have taken a step as simple as upgradingĀ  hard drive and made it to where you can’t do it. Hard drives also fail, its inevitable. When that happens you have to get a special drive from the Apple store with a 7 pin sata connector instead of the normal 4 pin. The different connector has thermal sensors and helps with fan and temperature control. Proprietary hardware types such as this flat-out suck. I use a mac here at work and I like it. It’s a 2010 model and I plan to keep it around as long as possible. When the hard drive fails, I will replace it myself.
