Yeah, we both know they are not doing board level repairs on these, they are simply replacing the single board inside returns, and with a 1 year warranty IRL that's as good as anyone really needs to expose natal defects. Hard Drive prices never dropped below $50 for anything new no matter what the size, and recertified mechanical drives have always been a crapshoot. Perhaps the floor for SSD will drop to $40, but I can't imagine anyone left in the business will want to even bother selling anything for less than that....
Right, it's only very recently that the price on new platter hard drives has finally gone down from $50 to the low $40's.
