    Cool thanks. I assumed I'd be spending £60 on a 500gb, so to get this a is a bonus. Just toying with the idea of paying a little extra and getting the 750GB. Do you have any idea on the performance of these drives? power consumption isn't an issue as its in a mini, but speed, noise etc?

    750GB is minimally faster due density but the difference is very small. What's the price difference of 640GB and 750GB?

    Well, it'd be nice to have it, but I'm getting 140gb more for the same price that I originally expected to spend. 1/3 extra cost for less than 1/6 more memory doesn't seem that good a deal to me so I've ordered the 640GB samsung
