Hard disk S.M.A.R.T. bad on start up?

How much would it cost to get a new hard disk for a laptop. It is a fujitsu laptop that costed about $900 new. Is it worth it to get it fixed or just buy a new laptop? Thanks.


You can buy a replacement hard drive and an external mounting dock for < $100 and do it yourself.

A professional repair store can also do this, but expect to spend at least $150, including the new drive. It's not particularly complicated, but it can be very time consuming - up to 8 hours, depending on the amount of data on the disk.
