I had an experience of making laptops run faster...When I tried to format the disk, it ran faster than the previous. This is just my opinion...Would it be faster?

No, not if it's brand new. Formatting helps if your computer is acting slow due to crazy fragmentation of data on the hard drive (which happens after using your computer a lot with most of the hard drive utilized, lets say 60%+), or an excess number of unknown / malicious processes are running - taking ages to load up on boot and burning valuable cpu cycles from then on. A brand new laptop won't suffer from either of these, unless the manufacturer really wants the user to have a poor experience and adds a bunch of crapware.

What do you guys mean "Hardware failures". If you're gonna format the hard disk, would the system/hardware performance increase? I'm thinking if we're gonna buy this....just gonna need it for college....

I've gone through two of these since September of 2010, and I'm having to return the second one because of hardware failures.

Oh, the first one was returned as a lemon after finding the processor's temperature sensor was faulty.
