    The 80GB iPod drive is old news, Toshiba announced it (model number is MK8007GAH) in December, and it's due to go into volume production this quarter. Their own 80GB Gigabeat player is due for release in September.

    I'll be happy with the 160 GB notebook drives! Early next year! Yes....... (Spoken like Napoleon after a drink of milk).

    I think they mean an 80GB 1" drive. iPod takes a 2.5". Think 80GB mini. But yeah, it'll be a while.

    Laptops use 2.5" drives (perpendicular starts @ 160-200GB) and the iPod used 1 (maybe 1.5") drives.

    The iPod mini uses a 1 inch drive. The regular sized iPods use a 1.8 inch drive. Hopefully, we'll see an 80 GB iPod later this year.

    White iPods use the 1.8" drives, minis use CF factor (nominally 1"). The drives are actually wider than that, the sizes are for the platters inside.

    i am all for a video ipod, but 80gb isn't needed for one. with the size of the screen, a full movie might be 1/4 gb

    Those little ones would be nice for a wicked tiny subnotebook, though the bulk of a CD drive might defeat the point. Still, anything that could free up room for a bigger battery would help :)

    My thoughts exactly. Anything above 120 would be just fantastic, but 200!?

    So tempting ...
