After reading the /. story about IBM trying to build a 100TB tape drive, I found myself over on Pricewatch.com (which lamely uses frames and makes it hard to bookmark the page I want you to see). I like figuring out three things:
- Where's the current sweet spot in SATA drive prices?
250GB for $120
- How much does a Terabyte cost?
$480 buys you four 250GB disks
- How much space can $1000 buy?
2TB and you'd have money left over to pay for shipping on the order
That's freakin' amazing!
I just wish laptop sized hard disks didn't lag so far behind. This 80GB disk seems downright tiny in comparison to what I could buy in a 3.5 inch form factor.
