    I was surprised to see that this is one of the rare occassions that Best Buy actually has a really good price on something. I just recently bought me and my wife 320GB Western Digitals though, and I think my wife would kill me if I bought another Tech Toy at the moment.

    If anyone gets one though, let me know so I can live vicariously though you.

    Here's the link.

    Why not buying the 7200rpm version instead, if you're going to bite the trouble of exchanging the drive? It's not much more expensive, but very much faster.

    +1 5400 to 7200 RPM is a huge speed increase.

    +2 I put the 7200 in my MBP and it has been great. I would recommend it.

    The problem is, though, that the Momentus 7200.4 drives are still quite hard to come by, sadly.
