Well, here is a heck of a deal. I have the 80 GB version. Nothing fancy, but it works fine for what it does.

Hey, thats not bad at all, although its a mail in rebate, I hate those. It doesnt have firewire though, thatd be nice.

You could slap together your own external drive and save a buck or two... www.dealsonic.com has the enclosures (click "External Enclosures" on the left side to see what they have). All you need to do is pop a standard IDE hard drive into the enclosure, screw it together, and voila! External hard drive for $25 or $30 more than an internal.
