Luckily hard drives aren't too expensive.  Chances are since it's only 
about a year old it'll have a SATA hard drive in there.  You can get 
2.5" SATA hard drives reasonably cheap, I got a 320GB one for about £40 
a couple of months ago, I believe they're a bit cheaper now depending 
what size you want.
