View Full Version : larger hard drive in the ipod...

They're making Powerbooks and Mac book pro's (very small computers) with 120 gig hard drives... what's stopping them from making an iPod with that big of a hard drive?

The powerbooks/portables use 2.5" drives (the MBP I know uses Serial ATA drives, not sure about the powerbooks). The iPod uses a 1.8" IDE drive. Development is slower and probably more expensive. Most likely, the 1.8" drives will get to 100+ GB, but it will take some time.
