It's a shame Apple just didn't make that standard. It's only $100 more. I jus wanted to mention it. Sorry if people know already.

I while back I bought a LaCie external 160 GB FireWire drive on which to put video files. Will probably need to get another (larger) external drive soon. All this to say that I see the internal drive being primarily for applications, etc. And 80 GB should be plenty for that.Now that I've said all that, I guess it would be nice if Apple could stick at least a 120 Gigger in the new iMac as that is what some of the higher-end consumer units on the PC side are going with at Best Buy, etc. Sign In or Register to comment.
