Image 1: Macbook: Apple recalls defective hard drivesApple is launching a massive recall campaign for Macbook hard drives.

The offending models are Seagate contained in white Macbooks sold between May 2006 and December 2007. If a flashing question mark appears when the computer starts, it means that the hard disk is already out of service.

Macbook models incorporating such hard drives are based on processors clocked at 1.83 GHz, 2 GHz or 2.16 GHz. For these Macs, Apple now changes the hard disks for free if they are 60, 80, 100, 120 or 160 GB. To do this, go to an Apple Store or an authorized center. The Cupertino company adds that this operation remains valid for three years after the date of purchase.
