Is this Hard Drive a good deal? Or should I wait?

    Check out this notebook hard drive. It's a Samsung 5400 RPM 500 GB drive.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152114

    It's at $150. Should I wait until prices lower, or would a new 1TB Hard Drive come out in the upcoming months?

    I can wait a while, probably looking into getting a new MBP sometime in Q2-Q3 2009, when another refresh happens and the school promo.

    It's awesome deal. Considering I paid $200 more than that… :eek:

    How often do you know of NewEgg decreases prices and new larger memory hard drives are released?

    Building off of this: would it be more worthwhile to go for a 320GB 7200 RPM drive rather than the 500GB 5400 RPM drive? (I.e., would a normal user see the different in the 7200 RPM drive?)
