if you don't mind dealing with rebates, Frys/Outpost.com often has
large Seagate drives on sale with significant rebates. make sure you
read the terms though, they are sticklers for what you'll qualify for.
typically it's one drive per family or address. but if you're just
buying one at a time then you shouldn't have any problems. they
recently had a 400GB Seagate for less than $200 if i recall
