Of all computer components that are likely to fail early the hard drive is the major one. As harryb says manufactures only put in the hard drives they don't make them. I've been in computers for over 20 years and even the big mainframe computers that the military uses, the most common failure is the hard drive. Every hard drive maker has some issues with hard drives. A long time ago Seagate had trouble with a particular model where the logic board on the drive would burn out for no reason. It happens so don't fret just remember to backup your data often, and move on. The main reason most basic computer warranties are 90 days is that if something is going to fail that's when it will happen.
