View Full Version : Re: GlobalMicro - 25gb 5400rpm Laptop HardDrive for $50! on Deals page

The drive is actually listed as 4200rpm on the website - still a great deal! I think I'll use it to replace a 4GB drive that I have been using with the $21 external USB case from Geeks.com. (http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp?invtid=VE-007NHD) Nice for backups and/or transferring files from one system to another.

even though it's an IBM drive, it won't fit my Thinkpad. Darn!!

Looks like it was taken off already. Guess I'll see if my order comes through.

http://www.newegg.com sometimes carries the 20GB IBM 5400RPM drive for $99, which is still a great price. I bought 3 of these last week, & they work great. They're bare drives, so you just have to unscrew your current drive from whatever bracket it's in & put this new drive in that bracket to make it fit your laptop.
I bought these for Dell Latititude notebooks - at CDW, the drive kits with the same drive & mounting bracket included were nearly $300! Quite a racket...

Does anyone recall the discount code that can be used on Geeks.com when using a mastercard (mastercard exclusive)?
I did a search but could not find it.

At first I didn't know who it was from. I kinda guessed and then sent them this reply:
"Sorry about the incontinence?
Would be nice to know who or whom sent this email.
Had a good laugh. Hope this isn't from a business. . . Pretty unprofessional in my opinion."
Hopefully TJ will have better luck with spell check in the future.
Or learn to hold it.
