An electrical engineering friend of mine advised that a longer lasting option to replace one's MacBook Air hard drive would be to buy a 1Tb Samsung EVO with Nand Gate Flash. See http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/ssd840evo/overview.html for more on this product. Jevon recently installed it on his old Macbook Air as a more durable option, since 'it's about the durability of the read/write ie how many writes can you do before the logic block corrupts'.

If you use your printer for more than four years, you may learn that it has an inbuilt 'printable pages limit'. Another example of printer manufacturers being neither customer- nor environmentally friendly?
