Apple Now this is interesting. My brand-new MacBook Air 11.6" is at my local Apple retailer because either the SATA part of the logic board or the SSD died mysteriously, and here we have Apple blocking PhotoFast from selling their faster, more spacious replacement drives.

It's about quality control.

ROTFL. Thanks for my laugh for the evening.

No, it's got absolutely nothing to do with 'quality control'. There is a warranty and if you replace your Macbook parts yourself you void it. Simple. What this is really about is Apple getting more than a bit irritated at Macs being commoditised.

I mean, heaven forbid that someone would buy a cheaper Macbook and replace the drive in it with a better one for less while Apple benefits from those same commodity savings. You can't have it all ways.
