    I just recieved the return from me email I sent Hitachi. I asked about availability of the new 7200 RPM 320G drive. I want to throw one in my MBP.

    Here is what they sent me:

    "Thank you for your interest in Hitachi Hard Drive products.

    Our Travelstar 7K320 hard drive will be available in Market Distribution at
    3rd quater of 2008.
    The drive that we release now is for OEM customer (System Manufacturer).

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Regards,
    Winston"


    So, for those of you waiting like me, July/August.

    Q3 for me then. But by then, the 500gb will be comparably priced. might just go for size.
