    So my wife's Macbook Air has disk utility reporting SMART STATUS: Failing.

    This is obviously bad, so I'm currently backing it up with Carbon Copy Cloner (do that every week) and running a full Time Machine backup.

    What else can I do?

    Will Apple replace the drive with no problems?

    under warranty they should replace it no problems.

    No good, buddy. They should be able to pop in a new drive quick and easy for you, and you'll be back in no time. At least you had the chance to backup before failure.

    I would get this swapped out ASAP. Seems like you are running on borrowed time...

    Backup completed via Carbon Copy Cloner AND a full time Machine backup AND all important files to the iDisk

    Apple Care is replacing it under warranty no questions asked. (And, since I was out of my 90 day phone support, I did pony up the $249 for full Apple Care...this machine I believe it's a safe bet on)

    Just will be without the machine a few days.

    Thanks everyone!
