They're an awesome drive; beautifully quiet and very fast access times. Bought one 3 weeks ago for $149 :(

Whats the bet this is like any of those cheap deals, gone in 10 mins, and "sorry, sold out".

You practically need to be waiting at the door before the store opens.

Haha the guys at GPForums called that straight away.

But no, it means nothing. I'd expect heavy advertising tomorrow and they will be sending out more mailers. Seems our postie delivered ours early.
