Hello, I bought this laptop in Feb 2013 and the hard drive failed in November 2013. I didn't buy the laptop from Amazon so not an Amazon issue. Gigabyte hardware simply isn't worth buying and worst off all, when I contacted Gigabyte support directly they refused to fix the issue. Now I have a 1000 paperweight. Avoid Gigabyte products. Stick to proper ultrabook manufactures. Thank you.
