The hardware can be in top knotch, and problems can still occurr with filesystems. Many a time, I've seen an
fsck finish on a root filesystem, and have to reboot the system due to changes, even when there have been no
crashes on the system since the filesystem was created.
If you really want to turn them off, or at least reduce their freqquency, you can use the tune2fs command to
do so, but I personally would leave things as they are.
