Our brand new Lenovo custom X200 tablet arrived last week and the hard drive failed after 3 days. Could users of the X200 give me an idea of how common hard drive failure is for this machine? I'm trying to decide whether to return the whole thing for a refund or risk having a replacement and finding out the tablet is a lemon. Thanks for your help, Hannah.

Lenovo Thinkpads use hdd built by companies like Hitachi, Seagate and Fujitsu, production of these hdd follows a stringent standard, failure of platter hdd used under normal condition are not common at all.

I also have an X200 tablet, purchased about 5 months ago, hard drive just failed. what made things worse is that I followed all the instructions to create the rescue/recovery backup DVD's and they don't work either!
Apparently there is some bug with the lenovo airbag protection which causes the drives to fail?
