    I had to post this as a new thread. For those of you that are looking to replace your hard drive on your macbook/pro in advance of Leopard...

    Currently the Hitachi Travelstar 200gb 7200 gets rave reviews...

    Too bad it sells for $200+

    I stumbled upon a thread this AM that talked about the following...

    I had to share it with you all.

    I would not recommend buying online because its a crap shoot, go to the store.

    I went to Best Buy at lunch and bought one for myself. (Be sure to get one that has DTG in the S/N. They had a few others that were not "DTG") Sure enough, its the 7K200. You are getting a $200 drive for $140 PLUS you get a USB enclosure!

    This is a steal!

    Interesting. I didn't know they made a 5400 RPM 200GB.

    Good deal though, if some indeed are the 7200.

    I have a bare drive sitting in its UPS box (Newegg, $204). I just need to go get my SATA USB adapter and start cloning. Sounds like work... ;)
