Hi

I'm also interresting to buy a new one bigger.
I'd like to know which HD is working with 40GB / 60GB.
Could you also give me some advice about the HD to choice :
        - which RPM ? does it have an effect on the battery lifetime ?
        - ...

And could you give me some web sites where I could buy it at the cheaper price.

Thanks
