Just by chance I went to a Best Buy store today and checked out the price on the Hitachi 200GB external hard drive, and was shocked to see it marked at only $85. Unfortunately, it was the 5400 rpm version with the WGNxxxxx serial number. The clerk said that Best Buy is clearing them out. So I jumped into my car and drove to the next closest Best Buy.
They had two of the desirable DTGxxxx serial number 7200rpm version at $98 each.
They wouldn't match the lower price because they said their low price quarantee doesn't extend to close-out items, even from other Best Buy stores.

I bought one at $98 and consider myself super lucky.

If you want one, hurry to Best Buy and get one before they are all gone.

I saw your note and as I was going down to the States for a few days, I tried two Best Buys in Niagara Falls/Buffalo. Unfortunately, no luck. One place had neither and the other had the $98 deal, but all WGN's.

That's why I posted this, so people can get one while they can. One Best Buy had only the WGNxxxx 5400 rpm version, the other store had two DTGxxxx 7200 rpm version. But I bought one so there was only one left.

What gets me is that I had been following Best Buy's website, but they didn't show it as a close-out item. Had price at $164.

you can pull the drive out of the case and use it internally if you want.


my magic number is 5 GB/US $1 right now - wont spend any more than that.

Completely different drive form factor. The 750GB drive is a standard size 3.5" drive, which won't fit internally in the Mini, while the Hitachi 200GB drive mentioned in the original post is a 2.5" notebook sized drive which can be used in a Mini.

You'll pretty much have to if you want to buy an internal drive for the Mini, as 2.5" drives have historically always been more expensive per unit of storage than 3.5" drives.

ah makes more sense.

without a link or saying that it is 2.5", i had no clue by the model number. $85 for a 200 is good for a 2.5" drive.
