Praps a better idea to get a bigger drive for your laptop?  2.5" IDE drives
in the 4200-5400rpm speed range (i.e. lower power consumption than 7200rpm)
are floating around US$100-130 right now, which isn't too shabby at all.
Seagate seem to be doing lower power 5400rpm drives in the 100 gig range for
about that price, seem not bad - am tempted to get one to replace the 20 gig
in this latitude x300 actually.
