    I would imagine any ATA/100 notebook drive would work, as long at it physically fit.

    However, it would probably be cheaper, and more versatile to have a full size 7200 RPM drive in a FireWire enclosure.

    Just a thought.

    IBM's supposed to be releasing 7200rpm drives up to 80GB sometime within the next couple of quarters (I'll have to dig up the link) so if you needed a lot of storage and speed, I'd wait for them.

    Well, speed of the drives is losing its relevance anymore due to the caches on the drive getting so big.

    I use Final Cut on my 12PB and I don't really have many problems with dropped frames. Sure I can bring it to a crawl if I'm stupid, or doing it on purpose, but it's quite good for normal best practices.

    Outerworld Computer has a Toshiba 60 GB drive 5400 RPM with a 16 MB buffer. The buffer is a big deal.
