01-18-2005, 05:02 PM #1crisroseGuestUK Question: Where can i get my HDD upgraded?
Well i've had my 1.2Ghz 12" iBook for a few months now, i've already maxxed out the memory and am finding that it's so good, i'm becoming increasingly dependant on what was just meant to be a desktop companion.
Anyways, i was stupid when i bought it, and only got a 30gb HDD, forgetting that the programs would take up space (or something like that, i don't know what posessed me really)
I know i can crack it open and stick any old 2.5 inch ATA 100 HDD in there myself, but i don't fancy killing the warrenty just yet.
Therefore, where can i get the HDD upgraded in a warrenty friendly manner? I'm in West London btw.
Also, as i'm sure this place would have to be Apple approved, will they actually put a HDD in that i've not bought from apple?
Sorry if this has been asked before, but i've done a search and couldn't find anything...

cant you do it at the Applestore?- It's like - he was got - they'd just like. It was like so hush hush. They were so... quiet about it. And then the next thing you know...

The apple store in London is well out of my way. I was hoping that there was a list of authorised places you could go to get your Mac fiddled with without killing the warrenty.
And yes, i know i can use an external drive, but it's not as robust (i know because i killed a 200gb one and lost a lot of stuff) and it kind of kills the small form factor and wireless nature of my iBook that are some of it's major features.
I can't believe none of you have had this done before!

I haven't done that either, but I would be very interested in know what apple says about upgrading the HD in an iBook
