    My boss just got a 200GB for $115 why would you ever pay $70 for 20GB .... thats just poor logic and I can't believe people owuld pay that.... check around I've seen like 60GB's in the $30-$40 range .... ebay might even have some used 20GB for first cheap

    pricewatch.com has 20 gig drives listed for 18 bucks new. Add some shipping of course.

    Off topic but Kwyjibo was it Coach K who said "At Illinois they talk about big ten championships, We talk about National Championships"?

    If you think that's crazy logic, I was fixing this computer for this lady, who insisted on paying $20 for a USED 6 Gigabyte hard drive for her old box. I tried to convince her to upgrade, but she didn't listen.... :confused:

    www.outpost.com might be a good bet, I got my Western Digital 250GB hard drive there for $99 after rebates.

    You gotta be good about sending the rebates in, they're due right away, otherwise you end up getting a pretty good deal.

    And by the way, it doesn't matter if you get a hard drive for PC or Mac, they're most likely interchangeable between computers.

    When will you people ever learn. Always shop newegg.com when it comes to PC parts.

    U can get an 80GB Hitachi , Seagate or WD Hard Drive for around $60 in SATA or $55 in IDE config. All these are 8MB buffer and 7200rpm. 160GB are like $90 , 250GB $135 no rebates.
