Newegg has the new Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB Serial ATA Hard Drive (model #ST31500341AS) on sale for $189.99 with free shipping.
In November 2006, less than two years ago, I paid $366 for a 750GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB Serial ATA driver (model #ST3750640AS).
Twice the capacity, half the price, in less than two years. Amazing.

I can’t believe that in May ’05 (a little over 3 years ago) I got a 250GB Maxtor external drive for $200… oh yeah, and it died earlier this year when we hooked it up to a Mac…
We knew it well, but now even our mistakes we can afford to dwell.
