    I want a bigger hard drive for one of my laptops and was wondering if anyone has deals on them. I want 80 gigs or bigger. I have checked out newegg and tigerdirect, but want to see if anyone can come with a better deal.

    imo, just get a usb external. you can get double the space for half the price.

    leave your os and shit on the regular drive, and keep your music on the external. thats what i do

    Ew, I sure hope that is for an external drive.

    PATA are always on sale for a lot less. I picked up a standard Seagate 160gb PATA for $40 after rebate at Circuit City. I even got them to price match Wal-Marts for another $20. So I got a 160GB for $20. SATAs are also on sale quiet often, especially at Fry's.

    Or you can always buy one of those PATA drives and make yourself an external one with this:

    So $20-50 for H.D.D. and $20 for enclosure, thats about $40-70 for 160GB external. :)
