I dropped my laptop from a desk, and the hardware broke...

Summary: I've had my Lenovo ideapad for just a year now, and although I admit it has slipped off the bed and onto a thinly carpeted floor, for the most part it has not sustained any major drops/damage.
Summary: I ordered a used Dell Studio 1737 laptop from a reputable distributor. I was excited that it had a 500gb hard drive, the biggest laptop drive I've ever owned. One month after receiving the computer, I got the blue screen of death. I ran diagnostics and found that the hard drive was bad.
Summary: I have had this drive since 2010. I used it for 1 year. Then it sat in stage for 2 years. I formatted and installed in my Sony laptop It lasted 2 years and started having errors. No loss of data but the screen would start to freeze. The grains card was fine.
Summary: I installed this drive on a Dell Laptop. I removed the 80 gig that came in the Dell and cloned it over to the 500 gig Seagate. I did after a few days have a problem with the drive but I don't blame the drive. Dell often times puts an unnecessary sometimes hidden partition on their drives.
Summary: My laptop, if you can call that, has space for 2 drives. I purchased this drive to use as a 2nd drive for storage of data only. For that, it did its purpose well. I have not had to use the "G" feature yet. Wouldn't dare to drop it to test it out. As a data drive, I don't care much for speed.
Summary: If you want to upgrade your laptop's hard drive capacity, this will be a good choice. You will have enough room to get your media files and your job files on the go and also the hard drive accelerometer will keep your data safe in case you drop the machine.
