Just got the news from a staffer at a retailer in Vancity. Get your wallets ready... I think this might be the price drop that I'm looking for. So what does that mean for Jan's MacXpo?? What's coming out the bag??

I've heard rumor the 10GB will be the entry level iPod.

¡Muy verdad! I guess you would put a laptop drive in the iPod. Does that mean that we can add a 40-60G?? Could be. To be looked into....

Anybody know if the drive in an iPod is commercially available? If so, could you potentially rip it open and stuff a 20 GB drive into it? Hmmm... fantasies of used iPods...

Then again, who would sell their iPod? I know I wouldn't...

The iPod (at least the 5GB model) uses a Toshiba PCMCIA hard drive (source).

You can buy PCMCIA hard drives, but they're pricey; at least half of the cost of the iPod is the hard drive. Plus it looks like Toshiba only sells the 5GB model to end users. I'm sure if you wait a year, though, your options will increase.

Additionally, the iPod uses a 1.8" Toshiba hard drive...those bad boys are only available up to 20 gig, at this point. Only the 2.5" go up to 40 gig.

As usual, I could be wrong.
