    thing is, i dont care what the capacity is.... so 20-40 gb would be good, even if its 4200rpm

    Linkage? All I'm seeing for 2.5inch hard drives are a bunch of ~100GB HD's for like $100.
    2.5" is a laptop harddrive, right?

    you know, i realized... that it is cheaper to buy an MBP with the smaller harddrive, buy a 200gb and an external sata case and use the 120gb as an external, than it is to just get it with the 200gb

    I went refurb so I've got the 100 GB :o.

    But that is very true, I just need to find a cheap 7200RPM 200GB 2.5inch HD

    No, I want a 2.5" HD, the OP said he was looking for a big 2.5" one so i thought you were posting about the 2.5" ones.

    in Northridge, home of the earthquake :noes:
    like 30 mins outside of LA

    the reason i want it is to plug in to a philips dvd player that i have that has a usb port... my 2gb jump drive is nice but i figure why not plug in 20gb, and that would be easier if i could just run a little usb network because the dvd player and computer are in the same room quite close to eachother. :dunno:
