Summary: I ran into similar problems as another reviewer - my hard drive completely failed 1 1/2 weeks after the warranty ended (I think they design products this way, I swear). I took the hard drive out and attempted to access it via an external enclosure on my desktop, and it won't even recognize it. I ordered and installed a new hard drive thinking I could reinstall Windows and cut my losses. Go back to original package...and no windows disk. But how could that be?
Summary: I bought this laptop in January of last year. I have had it in for repairs twice before March and now again since the end of December. So far, my RAM went bad, my motherboard went bad, and now my hard drive has failed. I've been more careful with this laptop than any I've ever had with any other computer; I have barely even taken it out of the house because I know how fragile it is.
