For those of you lucky enough to own a 13-inch or 15-inch Macbook Pro, you’ll be glad to hear that Apple issued a Firmware update today that fixes the hard drive’s tendency to make noise or freeze.  This update applies to those who purchased the Unibody laptop in June and with a 500GB 7200rpm hard drive.

A buddy of mine, who purchased a 15-inch Macbook Pro has already had his hard drive replaced after just a few months of use.  Since were on the topic of flaws, Apple’s design team overlooked just how uncomfortable the computer’s edges are on the wrists.  Anything else that’s worth noting?

To grab the update, just hit your system preferences and fire up ‘software update’ or hit the ‘read’ link.
