Apple Fixes Slow SATA Glitch in MacBook Pros

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Laptops" @ 07:00 AM

http://support.apple.com/downloads/...are_Update_1_7_

"MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.7 addresses an issue reported by a small number of customers using drives based on the SATA 3Gbps specification with the June 2009 MacBook Pro. While this update allows drives to use transfer rates greater than 1.5Gbps, Apple has not qualified or offered these drives for Mac notebooks and their use is unsupported."

It may have been reported by a small number of users, but it affects every single purchaser of the new MacBook Pro! Come on Apple, don't minimize this one. It's a biggie.

I also like how they CYA'ed with the "unsupported" bit in the description for the download. When did Apple become Microsoft?
