Yeah, I usually know when to expect an issue.  Like when playing with  
beta versions of Parallels.

I thought my HD problems were heat related as well, but from the  
research I've done I'm fairly certain that it was just a bad hard  
drive.  Get it replaced, they have quite high heat tolerances normally.

I was just talking about this with my boss the other day, he used it  
while he sent his Macbook Pro in to get a new case.  He was  
_blown_away_ by how comprehensive and easy it was.  His account on  
his Mac Mini is now an exact replica from his Macbook Pro (without  
disk imaging, etc).  Pretty impressive.
