    First off, wrong forum. Second off, what's the point really? That's like asking "when will the Moon be colonized".

    160GB drives are already about and there is a 200GB drive here now or very close. IBM is bringing through a few technologies that will allow major increases in HD storage densities over the next 2 - 3 years. By and large all the HD world is waiting for is the release of Serial ATA, which is about a month or 2 away.



    Meanwhile does this have anything to do with OS X and where on earth did you pluck an arbitrary number like 500GB from? I seriously doubt average people are even coming close to filling 80GB HDs right now let alone the larger ones.

    You'll be amazed if you give a packrat a chance. I filled 2 of them up and am working on a third.

    Want to know how to fill up a HD fast. See the "how many days of music do you have?" thread.



    ATA is going to be nice from a useability standpoint. I hate ribbon cables. What's the max drive size for SATA?

    Yes, there are drives out larger than 120 GB.
