    Awesome customer service
    Great customer service story!

    I bought my first Macbook Pro only a week ago. Unfortunately, I tried loading Windows and my entire hard drive was wiped clean. I took it to my local Apple Store in Atlanta and, although they were pretty certain that the hard drive was still good, they sent me home with a brand new computer and a free 500 gig external hard drive. What could have been a sour situation turned out to be a good experience and another thumbs up for Apple.

    Of course I will start backing up everything on my new external hard drive now.

    Waiting for a mate . . .
    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM & 13"MBP 2.9Ghz i7 8GB RAM 10.10.3, iPhone5 & iPad Air 2 iOS 8.3, ATV3
    Backing up IS THE WAY TO GO
    And have a look at SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner.
    As much as Time MAchine is a good strategy and does a great job, in case the HD falis again, its advisable to have a bootable copy. Time Machine doesnt support this as the other 2 do.
    I have a small partition as a bootable clone using SD and back up mu system with that as well.
    Better to be safe than sorry.
    But well done with the deal from 
    Good to hear stories like that every now and then
