Anybody interested in a 250GB internal drive?  

I got a good deal on this 250GB Ultra ATA Maxtor internal drive becuase it was "open box" — that is, somebody had bought it and then returned it, after which ClubMac checked it to make sure it was still okay. I reckon this happened for the same reason I'm interested in selling it — it was only after I installed it that I found out/remembered that older Macs will only support drives up to 128GB. My Blue&White G3 happily reads the first 128GB of the drive, but not the rest. So if you have a newer desktop Mac (or … I think it would work in a Windows machine) and would like a good deal on a drive….

It's a perfectly good drive that normally retails for $269.99. You can have it for what I paid for it: $153.99. For details about the drive, check out the ClubMac product listing:


Let me know, eh? Thanks!

I used to have an internal drive, but it made me walk funny.

I could be talked into it with a little arm-twisting...

So... Does that mean we should wait 24-48 hours to see if anybody else is hot to snatch it up? And then start gently applying pressure if not?

Sounds good. I'd like to give it a good home one way or t'other, don'tchaknow....

Yes, if somebody that needs it comes forth, let them have it. I do not need a 250 gig drive. I have been keeping an eye out for something in the 120 and up range for one of the other computers -- I figure that sooner or later, I'll need it for pictures and video storage. But I am a bit of a storage pig.

I guess it started when my first computer only had dual 400 k floppies, I've had an incurable case of hard-drive envy ever since...
