Hi, I bought a new Mini earlier in the week (i7 2.3 version, with stock 1TB disk and 4GB memory), found it was making weird noises from the hard disk so took it back today and got a replacement only to discover this one has the same issues. But that's another story. The issue here is that what i found when checking the SMART status of the drive has taken me aback somewhat. The stats on the one that i returned showed that the HDD had been on for about 23 hours and had a Load Cycle Count around 640. The replacement i got says the drive had been on for a total of 46 hours and had been powered on 453 times, with a Load Cycle Count of 1340 something. I didn't note the Power Cycle count of the first unit unfortunately. These stats seem awfully odd for an ostensibly brand new machine. 453 Power Cycles is incredibly high, and 46 hours seems like a lot of use fresh out of the box. That's something like 9 start-ups per hour. Does anyone have an idea what this might indicate? Should i take it back again? Thanks.
