iBook hard drive dying – or not?

25 February 2005

Last week I posted an entry about the hard drive of my iBook 12" dying. I just noticed a story on Ars Technica that describes exactly the problem I've been seeing.

Anyway, the delivery of the PowerBook has gotten pushed back a couple of times now, so I'm still on the iBook at the time of this writing. The weird thing is that the iBook is still working, and I'm not seeing much of the hard drive problem anymore. So while I'm still not up to full speed – for example, I'm using web mail instead of Mail.app to not invalidate my backup – I've still be able to keep up with things and even be somewhat productive.
