    Hi, Im looking for a 7200 rpm hard drive for the Mac Mini, so I can upgrade it. Around 80-100GB, I dont really need more than that, but if thats all there is, that works, because Im looking for something not *too* expensive. If anyone could provide a link or a site, thatd be great! Thanks!

    Newegg is usually the cheapest for things like this. They have a nice search feature (once you get into the hard drive section) where you can put in your criteria and find the exact hard drive for you.
    www.newegg.com/

    Note: I highly recommend spending the extra money and getting a seagate drive. They are usually more money than other brands, but they give a 5 year warranty where most only give 1 year or 3 year warranty.

    Just make SURE you read the fine print and get the drive with the full 3 or 5 year manufacturers' warranty (depending on brand) not an OEM or Pulled product with 0 - 1 year warranty, or a used drive (Also called 'factory recertified', reconditioned or refurbished.)

    If it says "X Year warranty by {Retailer name}" or "Warranty from Importer" then you know it doesn't have the manufacturer's warranty,and it is probably a gray market product.
