    Hi all,

    I am getting ready to purchase a Mac Mini ($599 version) and 4GB RAM from Amazon ( I like the free shipping with Prime plus no tax). I would also like to get a WD 7200 RPM hard drive from Amazon as well. Can someone tell me which is the correct WD hard drive to order for the Mac Mini from Amazon?

    This one, unless you're planning to drop your Mini from a great height on a regular basis.

    I've got a new in box Hitachi Travelstar 320gb 7200 rpm up for sale in Marketplace.

    I prefer Travelstars over Western Digitals and Seagates. I prefer Seagates over Western Digitals when Hitachi hasn't stepped up to the plate. It seems like Hitachi takes its time to properly introduce their faster bigger hard drives, while Seagate jumps into the fray first, with problematic issues that always need to be sorted out later.
