Western Digital has unveiled a 120 GB portable "Passport" hard drive that features a 2.5" 5400 rpm drive of WD's Scorpio drive series. The drive can be used with either a USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 port, and has 2 MB of cache. Price should be around $200.
wow I mean I don't think a person can actually use up that much space on a hard drive!!!!!! geez, thats alot of space!!!! however, having a big hard drive like that, will make your PC much faster, and load things better.

[b]Originally posted by barfarf:[/b][quote]Nice portable back up! BUt i would like to 7200 RPM. I mean 7200 RMP is main stream now for a while. Actually i would like to see 120gig flash drive for $200. But that is still ways away.[/quote]Actually, for occasional data management (which is what this was meant for), 5400 RPM is just fine. Most people won't try to run programs for it, but even for data streaming.....movies and such....it should be just dandy. I'd buy one in a heartbeat if I needed it.
