    Guys,

    A few weeks ago my mac mini stared getting really laggy and slow, and used to freeze every couple minutes and then continue to function.

    I ran a verification on the HD and gave me a msg saying SMART status failing...
    and I tried formating it and installing Lion but couldn't...

    What are my options?
    if I have to change the hard drive, how do I know which one to choose?

    Thanks!

    You must replace the drive. Backup your data.

    Back up your data ASAP, and as Intell stated replace your drive
