Ooooo…. Big hard drive….
Yay! I finally ordered a new hard drive! It is a 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATA. I got it for $109 – $36 GC – $25 GC + $0 S/H = $48. Yeah, 500GB drives are available, but they cost like $200 to $300. The 320GB model has a much better price/GB ratio.
I’m going to try to leave my current 70GB in there and then use the 320GB as the primary drive, and install Ubuntu Linux on it. Then I’ll try to use Windows XP under Ubuntu instead of as the primary OS. We’ll see how it goes.
