Seagate Momentus 5400 PSD..where to buy

Postby cpmpal » Mon Dec 31, 2007 4:36 pm

hi,
i got an alienware for christmas and it of course has two hard drive slots. the issue is the slots sport a real sata connection like a desktop hard drive, this makes really
hard to find a hard drive that actually fits that connection for a laptop. And i was wondering if anyone knew where to get my hands on this drive:

Seagate Momentus 5400 PSD ST91608220AS

for maybe newegg like prices

then i can finally quad-boot MAC OSX86, vista home premium, xp, and Kubuntu/Suse/Centos (anyother distro you can think of) :) :supz: with extra space
