You must have some serious storage needs! And you are welcome!

There could be a number of reasons why they are the only retailer with that drive from exclusive rights or some contractual detail, who knows. If it concerns you that much try contacting OWC by chat or phone from their main page. Or contact Toshiba even. The only real thing that would turn me away from this drive is the relatively short 2 year warranty. Many drives come with at least a 3 year and some have a 5 year warranty, but that's just my opinion.

comment Why are notes not being saved when using Notes on my macbook pro?
@leora -This is a shot in the dark... Did you try signing out of iCloud and then sign back in after a restart?

Also this thread seems to be a similar issue.

Perhaps the problem lies with iCloud. Go to System Preferences, iCloud and see if Notes is checked in the list in the right pane. And maybe signing out of iCloud and then sign back in. Notes is supposed to auto-save and sync to iCloud as you type notes, so that's what made me think the problem could be there.

Do you have iCloud set up?

comment Recommended MacBook Pro 13 (mid 2012) SSD upgrade?
I second this. When I purchased my MBP I planned to immediately replace the stock drive with a 7200 rpm WD drive. I called Apple to ask about warranty issues and the CSR told me that both memory and the hard drive are considered user-replaceable items and do not void the warranty if upgraded properly. However in the event service is needed, he recommended that I replace the third party drive with the original Apple drive to ensure that it wasn't the issue. He also mentioned any damage caused by user upgrades would not be covered by the warranty.
