SSD failing less than a year, what can I do under warranty?

Hi guys,

I have a Lenovo Yoga pad 13, that I purchased around April - May of 2013. I had my laptop undergo a diagnostic by the Microsoft Store whom I bought my laptop from.

They informed me today that my SSD drive is already FAILING and will need to be replaced. I cannot believe this as I have had this laptop for under one year. It is extremely hard to believe that a laptop that came with one of newest hard drives is already failing.

I was wondering what can I do about this with the limited warranty (I did not buy the extended warranty). Is this a manufacture defect, and if so what do I do?

Appreciate the help guys.

have a 1 or 2 years warranty. So like was said call Lenova and get a RMA and they will tell you what to do.
