Code: Select all
root@death:/home/dave# smartctl -a /dev/hda|grep Model
Device Model:     IC35L120AVV207-0
root@death:/home/dave# smartctl -a /dev/hda|grep Power_On
  9 Power_On_Hours          0x0012   098   098   000    Old_age   Always       -       19132


That's over double your 13 months, and that's power-on time :P.
