    i'm getting very excited about going into Regent Street on friday after work to buy a mac pro.

    i want to go to dabs.com tonight to buy a couple of 3.5" SATA 500Mb drives to plug in to the beast when it arrives.

    i just wanted to check that 3.5" SATA drives are the right ones.. yes?

    I don't have a Mac Pro but 3.5" SATA is what you want.

    I've been researching 500 GB SATA drives for external enclosures (I plan on buying a bunch) and I've concluded that I'll skip the Seagate 7200.10 (it's noisy and slow) and get the Western Digital WD5000KS.

    I installed a WD5000KS into my MP's number three slot last night... worked a treat!
