I can't work out how it could possibly cost that much.

I can buy a DIY 2Tb kit from OWC for less than US$500...

That people created a topic about the SSD then another topic about the same SSD.

B) shock

Receiving an email from Google Maps telling me that I had reached a new record because I had reviewed three places.

...depends how much neurological and physical damage has been sustained by 30 years of heavy drinking and sausage rolls at smoko.

 

Before you beat them, you need to catch them.

People who use "can you...?" instead of "may you...?".

 

Even if you possibly can, you probably may not.
