I have a Pismo 400 with a 6GB drive that just isn't big enough anymore.
Any recommendations on a 10 GB or larger 2.5" IDE drive? I don't need a huge drive.. just a small price tag

Are you sure you'll be happy with 10GB? I used to have an iMac wit a 6gig HD and I thought it wasn't enough. Then when I got my iBook with a 10GB I found that I was running out of space quickly so I got an external 60GB. I think in the long run you'll be better off getting a larger internal drive rather than just a 10GB.

probably. that's how i felt at least. i am putting a 30 GB in a TiPB for my sister, and taking her stock 20GB and putting it in the iBook. thus leaving me a 10 GB drive. on my PC i've got over 120GB of storage, but only about 30 of that is still free.
not sure what size drive the Pismo takes, but i just picked up a 30GB drive for the iBook (really small drive) for $150. well worth the money.

Some guys have all the luck.
If anyone else have a spare 10-15 GB disk just sitting there on the desk I would gladly free the desk space for you
and I am even prepared to PAY FOR THE SHIPPING. Thats an offer you can´t refuse.
Perhaps we should make a trading thread. A list of parts you don´t need and want to give away.

Wow alcimedes! That would be great. I don't know what the going price is for a 10 Gig, but i would gladly pay you for the disk.
As i mentioned before, i don't need a huge drive, but i've been editing audio files and need a few extra gigs of breathing room. 10 Gig would be perfect.
I don't have your email address (not an admin anymore
) but please drop me a note at robo(at)robo.cx

Robo, <a href="
%26%20SCSI%20for%20Laptops&Template=" target="_blank">here's a link</a> that lists many popular 2.5" drives.
I would seriously consider the 48GB IBM travelstar at $380 if you are looking for speed. It runs at 5400rpm and is significantly faster that anything else on the market.
If you're on a budget, the best storage per unit price is offered by 30GB drives. One listed Fujitsu 30GB drive costs only $140.
(And shouldn't this thread be in Current Hardware, you naughtly little man?)
