    Uhhhhh.

    What hard drive? You didn't link to anything.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

            The hard drive is fine.
            I would get the same hard drive from a different vendor and safe yourself some cash, though. Dell's markup is pretty ridiculous. I'm certain you can get that same hard drive for at least $25 less.
            Try NewEgg as a starting point.

              well, there's a promotion code ( GTWHM29GJMDTL9 ). and with tax and shipping, it comes out to be $90.29. but i'll check newegg if they have a better offer. thanks.

                nope. dell is cheaper than newegg. they are $99 before taxes and shipping. i think i'll go with the dell one...now to get a power supply...thinking of getting the M2-ATX 160W from here...

                  seagate has a 1.5tb hard disk that's pretty good too; model#: Barracuda 7200.11
                  I've had the unit running in my car ever since it was released, and can attest that it is fast & reliable. As darque pointed out, search newegg.com for competitive prices.

                  best wishes!
