Apple Columnist Bill Thompson at the BBC asks whether the time has come for Apple to be put under the EU microscope in the same way as Microsoft has. "If Apple was serious about building a music industry around downloads and digital devices then it would open up its devices and interfaces to allow greater innovation and greater competition."

Excuse me, could you clarify? If you own a MacBook, and if you have a defective Harddrive, it should be replaceable without opening the MacBook. Check this:

I might very well miss something here or misunderstand you, but also the price seems quite high for a MacBook. Are you talking about a MacBook Pro, maybe (would explain the hard drive exchange thing)?

Definitively MacBook. The price includes taxes and warranty from manufacturer and retailer (in Canada). I would expect the service to tell me about replacing hard drive but none of them did. I have already sent to repair anyway.
