Well ya, for storage it's fine. But for the extras? Seagate is a total win for that!

I haven't actually ever had a bad hard drive.  Every hard drive I have is in tip-top shape.  Some of them are 8 years old!

Oh, the site that was :(

This is luck or the hard disks are not being used so many hours!

I think that by manufacturing characteristics, all HDs have specific operating hours to live. And this is something written also to many shops when one reads the HD specifications.

I have experienced about 4-5 HD deaths the last decade (but I use ~10 different kinds of PCs). Of course I have replaced 2-3 dozens of notebook HDs of customers because they do not know that they shouldn't move the notebook while operating(!). Only a few notebooks (usually the more expensive models) have mechanism-censor  to move the heads of their HD aside while the notebook is moving…

My girlfriend used to carry her netbook everywhere into her house…although she knew it was bad habit. I switched her HD to SSD and now I sleep calm :-)

"Don't know they shouldn't move the notebook when operating"-I move mine, I just back up my data and have an extra (bigger, actually) hard drive in case I need it.  On my other laptop, I'm actually waiting for it to die Wink.  It just won't die!!!!! (It's the one I decided to install Ubuntu on… now it's my main computer.)

"My girlfriend"


 

You have a girlfriend!? Aw SCREW IT!!! I don't have one yet! Cry Everyone is taken, when am I gonna get one!!!

 

@Locu

Instead of wanting your laptop to die, how about you re-image it and clear everything out, re-install Ubuntu or Windows and POOF! Brand new computer! Don't forge t clean your laptop with a semi-wet microfibre towel, and wipe the screen with a special solution. Then there we go, BRAND NEW LAPTOP!

 

At my school, I'm probably the ONLY ONE who has the most cleanest laptop ever. Not to be sacarstic or anything, but it's a fact. Lots of people are like "Joji why is your laptop so shiny", or"Whoa so clean… it's only a SCHOOL LAPTOP why do you care it so much?"

Well no the computer is fast cause I'm not running Windows on it (after installing a service pack, Windows' speed seems to drop off a cliff).  But the problem is, it's becoming my main computer!  It isn't transportable!  Its battery connector shorted out!  All in all this laptop isn't a laptop, it's a tiny desktop with a screen!

Mine has a 14.6" screen, too, but no battery because the connectors inside the laptop have shorted out.

Ohhhh right right. My laptop has a battery that could last up to 6 hours. Well, the primary battery provides 5 hours, and the secound battery provides 1 hour of… you know.
