    What the heck you needing that much space for? Just kiddin. I'm down to 10.08 GB left on my 3 week old MBP. The 160 GB drive isn't enough. As soon as I get my refund for the iPod I also got, I'm buying a 500 GB external drive.

    As far as your original question, I think you are right.

    Running out of room for Jon Stewart Daily Show... you know in 1 year of downloading it that would eat up tons of space along with the Colbert Report.

    Currently 250GB is the largest. Depends on what "soon" means. 300GB should be available this fall, but it'll be a while after for larger. (Fujitsu announced a 300GB recently).

    Does your trash can not work? Kidding. How about burning a few to DVD and then trying out the trash can? I need to remove some of this captured video and stuff. I may also delete my entire iTunes library and just use my iPod from there. Technology sucks. I NEED MORE SPACE!

    The Fujitsu MHX2300BT is supposedly the largest 2.5" drive at 300 GB, although I haven't seen it in retail channels yet. 250GB is available from at least two vendors, with the Western Digital 250GB Scorpio drive as the first one that started shipping.
