    Does anyone have a macbook with a 200gb harddrive?

    I'm looking to upgrade mine. Has there been problems with the 200gb? What is the best brand to buy?

    When is fugitsu coming out with the 300gb one?

    Come on people!!! I have questions, give me some answer!!!! :p

    I personally don't think the $100 jump in price is worth 40GB more. That is why I am getting a 160GB. I understand some people need more speed, but for $100 you can slap together a much bigger external.

    Just a thought.

    i bought mine in the store with 120gb, i just couldn't wait!!!!

    figured I'd upgrade it to a 200gb. But there is talk of the 300gb one coming out. That would be sweet.

    p.s. suneohair, don't really think 100 bucks more is that big of a deal. I know its not much, but keeping it on your computer so you can travel with it is a nice thing...FOR ME. But if you're using it more as a desktop replacement, then I understand.

    I just can't justify paying $100 more for 40GB more. If you look at the other jumps, the jump from 120 to 160 is about $40.

    100 to 120 is only $10. When I buy drives, I buy the biggest I can buy where the increase in cost is a step below the highest. 200GB is pretty much the biggest you can buy right now. Hence the premium. Now when the 300GB drops, yeah the 200GB will be a great option and it should be cheaper.

    But at this very moment it wouldnt make sense to buy a 200GB unless you really need the space on the go and cant carry a small external.

    My laptop is a desktop and laptop at the same time. I want the most space like anyone else but at a $100 price jump it doesnt seem worth it RIGHT NOW.
