    Wow! Nice find, but very expensive. It won't work because the interface is SCSI, not IDE, which the powerbooks use :)

    Weird. Seagate must be trying to create a new market nitch. I can't think of a single device that uses 2.5" drives that also has a USCSI320 interface. Maybe we are on the verge of the next major disk drive downsizing. Maybe next year all new desktops and servers will start moving to the 2.5" form factor. Even so, I'm not sure why they didn't go with SATA2 instead of USCSI320.
