I subscribed to a mag like that . . . back in my Atari 800 days. Can't remember the name of it though. :P

First thing I do with any HD, WD, Seagate, whatever, is to reformat it and get rid of the software. That way I get to use all the bytes I purchased and don't have to fiddle with unnecessary software.

Surgery is done and the patient lives! ;)

Trickier job replacing the HD on the 2007 MBP, the 2012 model was easy, but done and buttoned up, and everything seems to work fine.
