Default Heads up, external hard drive/ Fry's

I needed about 120GB. Went to Fry's (Plano, TX), unadvertised in store special, 500GB for $109. They were asking $129 for the 120GB. Maxtor. USB2.0/ firewire. I love it.

I'm pissed/glad they don't have a store near Milwaukee. Because I would always be there.

This was posted on Slick Deals last night, I think the volume may have crashed the server though, because I have been getting 404 errors all morning. If it comes back up, this is a killer deal:

Quote:
DriveStation Duo USB 2.0 & FireWire External Hard Drive 800GB

$129.99

shipping starts at around $7 and varies according to zip code

I should probably pay you for one of those... I mean, I've got to be responsible for a couple hundred gigs with my babbling!

It was bad when Fry's was on the way home from work. Now that it's 90 minutes away, I'M FREE!
