What the heck is a 1.8" hard drive? Do you mean a laptop hard drive? They're all 2.5" and are available from any computer component store.

It looks like the disk is currently being nicked by Apple of the Ipod and after that it will probably go to system manufactueres and then to general shops. Try contacting your laptops maufacturer to see if they have any instock.

Mustard, you should be able to use the iPod ones providing they're IDE, if not, you can always get an adapter.

Evil dirty Ipods, its ashame they didnt go straight to laptop/desktop but i suppose it allows the price to drop and better research into the drive technology.

The ipod hard drives are compatible, buts they're only 60gb, I need 80gb! The toshiba website says they offer 80gb, but I can't find them anywhere. They should be available because I've seen articles about Toshiba, saying they've started shipping them out to Apple in 2005.

I am sure they are compatible because I took my hard drive out and it is exactly the same as the ones off ipods on ebay. My laptop is made by Toshiba, and Toshiba are the only suppliers of these 1.8" hard drives.

Yeah I heard they were going to be shipped in Q3 2005. Apple are unign them in the Ipod and atm probably stockpiling them so they dont run out in the first few days. It really depends how big the production runs of these drives are.

If you have a look around its still quite difficult to get hold of 7200RPM 2.5" drives even though they have been available in prebuilt machines for over 18 months.
