Consider having your player stolen or losing it, 300 CDs on 20Gb @
$10/CD (yeah, right), drives are cheap. Really, for the convenience of
listening to ANY song at ANY time, drives are cheap... once you're out
of school ;) (sorry). Plus you protect your CDs by not taking them out
or carrying them around. I love having a 60Gb drive, I can finally put
the rest of my CDs on my player AND I have massive room for storage.

Well, if your 10 gig drive was full, you are looking at a price in the
ballpark of $50,000.00 ($5/meg x 1000 meg/gig x 10 gig) at that price.

You could buy a a fair number of new CD's for that much money, maybe
almost enough to possibly replace a major part of your lost
collection...
