    You're looking for a HDD and 80 gigs is enough yet you post a link to the best deal you can find and it's 300 gigs?

    80 ≠ 300

    Well he did say 80+ gigs. I think its a better idea to buy a larger HD like the 300 gig. Cheaper for the gig.

    The best rule is you can never have a big enough Hard drive go for the biggest you can afford you'll be surprised how quick you fill it

    All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in my post's are intentional.

    80gb for $65??? that isn't a good price AT ALL anymore. it might have been a good price several months ago, but not now.

    you can get 160gb for that price.

    office depot is practically giving away 100gb drives at $20 (see the "rebate savings": $99.99 - $40 - $40 = $19.99).
    http://www.officedepot.com/textSearc...rue&Ntt=941504

    anybody interested in it should move quickly 'cause the rebates are only valid on purchases made between 9/25/05 and 10/01/05, to customers within the 48 mainland states. supposedly maxtor exhausted their supply of 100gb drives, so some people have received 120gb drives in boxes labelled "100gb."
