yes, i did the search. i was about to order a hd when i heard these have an overheating problem from the representative. can anyone chime in about this supposed problem with seagates? and why is this drive so cheaply priced ($82)? help asap would be great since i needed to upgrade by yesterday. any suggestions? also, i'll be using external hds for storage of everything and the main drive for aps only but i'd like a large amount of free space as well to kepp everything fluid. basically i'll be doing everything on this like final cut (eventually final cut 2), cs3, misc music programs, etc. let me know, thanks.
