My son's Ahmad laptop
a 2 years old white MacBook
started to hang and stop working sometimes.
Ahmad formatted it and reinstalled the OS.
But the problem still existed.
I suspected a hard disc "HD" problem.
We took it to iCity workshop in the Avenues
where they told us it could be a software problem
or either a HD or a cable problem.
They took it and called me next day to tell me its ok
it just needed formatting and now its working fine.
I had to pay 15 KD for a stupid format.
In the same day, at night Ahmad had the same problem again.
We took it back to them next day
and they said it is a HD problem !!
Well wasn't that what we told you in the first place ??!!
Do we have to pay 15 KD for useless format
to tell us what we already knew ??!!
They said its ok.. the 15 KD will be discounted
from the price of the HD if we purchase it from them.
Ok.. how much the HD ?
And here is the big surprise :)
the 160 GB is for 60 KD
the 250 GB for 70 KD
the 320 GB is for 90 KD
what the hell ????
and I am supposed to feel happy cause the 15 KD
will be discounted from these crazy prices.
So I took the laptop back home,
back to my friend youtube where I learned how to
replace a macbook hard disc.
Went to Bin Khaldoon street and bought me
a WD 320 GB SATA HD for 19 KD only.
Thats it.. same brand as the one in iCity.
They sell it for 90 KD and I got it for 19 KD!!
الاستغلال شلون صاير ؟؟
What do you call that ???
I came back home and installed it.
Here you can watch how to install the HD.
To all apple users, if you need any help in replacing
the macbook hard drive, please let me know.
Its so easy.
