I wanted to have a MacBook Air (the most current model) since the day it shipped, just because of the SSD. So until now, I’ve been missing out.
I don’t want to upgrade my iMac to an SSD because just because I don’t want anyone opening up my machine other than real Apple people1.
I reside in the Philippines where there is not a single Apple store that exist, only authorized retail stores. Some of the retail stores like the Power Mac Center does a really good job at mimicking the original Apple store from the US2. It also follows that the people inside the store as well as the technicians/experts aren’t employees of Apple.
That’s a problem for me. I don’t trust any person can do better than what a real Apple employee can do – in terms of fixing, repairing or even upgrading my machine.
It looks like I’ll just have to wait until my iMac breaks down. When that time comes, it looks like I don’t have any other choice but to let them screw with my machine, not a big deal since I’ll be bringing my machine to them already in a screwed state.
- I know that a even simple Hard Drive replacement for the iMac means opening up the machine. So I want real experts to do the real work ↩
- I guess its probably the deal with Apple that if you want to sell their products, the store needs to look and feel like consumers are inside a real Apple store – just my hunch. ↩
