Advertisements You realize, prices on hard drives continue to spiral down. I remember spending $300 on a 3GB Apple branded drive? I just bought a 1.5TB drive for $65. so when I said $50 or so, that seems right. Not $70, although if you look, I'm sure you can pay that. Update - I find a number of drives right now at $55. Ben's Bargains is where I look to alert me to deals. As others have said, the WD green series work fine.
