MyService starts MacBook Pro 750GB HDD upgrades
MyService has launched a 750GB MacBook Pro hard drive upgrade service, providing round-trip shipping, professional installation of the drive and full data transfer.
Apple service provider MyService has launched a 750GB MacBook Pro hard disk upgrade. The company is providing round-trip shipping, installation of the drive, and full data transfer. In particular the new drive is a 5400rpm Scorpio Blue model from Western Digital. Its height slightly exceeds the standard 9.5mm for 2.5-inch drives, but still fits in the computers accepted by MyService.
A compatibility list includes not only all unibody MacBook Pros, but the 13-inch basic unibody MacBook, and the 17-inch Pro with a silver keyboard. MyService is promising a 24-hour in-shop turnaround, and the option of installing Snow Leopard for $30.
The service costs $375 and includes shipping, data migration and the return of the old drive. Other drive capacities are available at varying prices. As MyService is an authorized service provider, upgrades should not void Apple's warranty.
