As long as you have your all your data and the OS backed up to external media you can always recover if the hard drive ever fails.
You can probably pick up a HD for apx. $50 if you ever need to, and those are user serviceable, so they are easy to replace.

Greg, you did a SUPER job helping me with the install this spring. I sit with the laptop in my lazy boy. I set it down when I get up. I was 2" too close to the laptop when the corner of the chair came down on it. As for the keyboard I use it every night.... This is the first one that I have rubbed the letters off the keys....

Will let you know how I do when I get the keyboard and screen installed.....
Thanks, Eileen
