I am not sure why you would go to the trouble of posting your complaint(rant?) about aperture/apple and then decline their offer to fix the source of the problem???
You make a statement that the program is no good, and then refuse an offer to have it resolved simply because photography is a hobby? That makes no sense to me at all.
Hello Big Bird,
When I first posted the 'rant' I had not had the good fortune to have a friend (who has the exact same machine as I) to come use my computer.
It's been noted on many Mac forums that the standard 250GB Seagate HD is quite noisy, and so I had dismissed mine as being 'normal'. My friend, with exactly the same drive, now informs me that mine is excessively noisy compared to his, and that he thinks it may have a fault.
With this information in mind, should I then accept an offer - which I have gone at length to describe as a very very impressive - from Apple to fly somebody over from the US to the UK just to have a look at my machine?
I don't think so, maybe your thinking is different
If the person was travelling from within a couple of hundred miles, then maybe, but from America?!
