    I'm trying to get the exact model of the 160GB Hard Drive used and what interface it uses. Unfortunately after searching all I've found are links to speculated hard drives based on product anoucements by samsung and toshiba and a tear down of the 80GB model by ifixit.

    I would have assumed it used a toshiba drive like the 80GB BUT the 160GB one uses a different interface than the 80GB one based on toshiba's specs and it would seem that the samsung (spinpoint n2) one might use the same interface as the 80GB toshiba but no model number has been posted so I can't get its exact specs.
