theres a lot of HDs out there - it all depends how big you want to go tbh.
I know the Toshiba MK6021GAS (60GB) is a good choice for its size in
terms of power usage, but its only got a 2MB cache on it. On the other
hand the Toshiba MK6022GAX (also 60GB) has a 16MB cache, so it naturally
has a lower latency, but it does require more power up and to seek
(typically 0.3watts more).
I know there are people who are using 80's in the mailing list - but I
dont know how well they perform. In short it just depends how how much
you're willing to spend.
