hard drives
« on: June 10, 2002, 12:34:00 AM »

why does a 20gig hard drive and a 80gig hard drive have to be within a price range of 40 bux of eachother? Thaz kind of dumb that even small hds are kind of expensive for not having very much space on em. Anyone know where I can grab a 10-20gig hard drive cheap?

Go to circuit city and all those other retail stores and try to find the same thing for that price...you won't...pricewatch is just about the cheapest place you can find stuff....

yep, HDs dont change in price much when you change capacity.  The money to produce the drive isnt tied up in the platers, its in the r/w interface and such.  So since all drives have that... the price isnt going to fluctuate that much between drive sizes.
