Situation: It's been a over a week now since my macbook harddrive crashed on me. It was showing a folder with a question mark on it during startup. Took it to apple store and they said it's pretty much dead. This was later confirmed by the local university IT dept I took it to. I have gigs of data, mainly important pictures that I will never get back. I called one of the data retrieval places Apple Store endorses and they quoted me at least $1500. That's absolutely ridiculous I thought. So I'm pretty much fucked. I'm really tempted to file a lawsuit against Apple. The macbook is not even a year old and this happens. I've spent hours backing up the data in photo CD-R's when it suddenly died. I'm extremely frustrated right now and I'm beside myself. What should I do?
