I believe that's gotta be one of the most idiotic things I've heard.

My guess is that the vast majority of the long time members here are dual and even triple booting their machines. If there was some inherent flaw in an OS, any OS, causing hardware failure, it would be all over the media.
Yeah I figured that much. I'm just surprised that a new machine would fail like that after less than a month of use. I'll give it another go ahead and see what happens.
