  Correct... but where is the instant gratification in mail order?  ;)

  Generated from pricewatch today... prices as shipped without tax 
applied (if the vendor applies sales tax add 8-13 dollars).  First 
price is average of 20 lowest vendors, second is range of price from 
20 lowest vendors.

5400 RPM, 120 GB Maxtor, 4G120J6           - $173, $157-185
7200 RPM, 120 GB Western Digital, WD1200BB - $183, $175-187
7200 RPM, 120 GB IBM, 120GXP               - $186, $174-209

5400 RPM,  80 GB Maxtor, 4D080H/4K080H     - $117, $ 98-149 (only 17 vendors)
7200 RPM,  80 GB Maxtor, 6L080J4           - $131, $120-139
7200 RPM,  80 GB Western Digital, WD800BB  - $118, $112-124
7200 RPM,  80 GB IBM, 120GXP               - $113, $106-119

  If I didn't have to pay the $20 sales tax, then the Fry's drive 
would be a clear winner...

  I should really clean up my pricewatch munching scripts to something 
I can export...
