    All that for only 120 GB ?

    I would say it's more worth the D/L SuperDrive option. I can see maybe if you got an older lappy with maybe 40 GB. But for someone like me with a new 17" with 100 GB it isn't worth much. If you need the space, do it.

    120 GB drives are very expensive for laptops. PLus installation doesnt seem TOO bad.

    yeah the other places ive seen sell the hard drive alone for 120....i figure i can sell my internal one now for around 80 (60gb) and sell a dvd burner i have for 150, and thatll put me close to it.

    Have you considered going through newegg. For $235 you can get the 120GB hard drive and install it yourself. The process isn't very difficult. Then either get a cheap external case for you old drive to transfer the files and have a portable external. Or if you have a desktop you can transfer your data to it and back. You can also get a 5400RPM 100GB for $155 their isn't much of a difference in storage but the price is half. Just my two cents.
