Mac Needs Bits  
So, I've been idly thinking about getting a new drive for my 12" PowerBook. Cuz, well, I'm almost out of space on it again. Occasionally I'll delete stuff to make room, but eventually I won't be able to do that anymore -- and my music collection won't fit. Waaa. The horror.

Of course, looks like 160GB laptop drives are under $200 these days. So I suppose I could just go buy one. But there's the issue of moving the data over. Which, uh, would be more difficult. I guess I could just wander into an Apple store and say "I've got this here 160GB drive, and this here PowerBook, how much to install it and copy the data over?"

But I dunno.

Any ideas?

I dunno about MACs, but the husband and I have this problem continuously. No matter how much space we buy, we always need more. We settled for external USB2 drives, 200G each. But then, he mirrored them so we still only have 200G. *shakes head* I just want to listen to my music. hehe

No, I want internal -- the whole point of having the music library on the laptop is so it can go with me.

I've got a 250GB external drive on the Dell for more generalized storage (right now, mostly 日本のドラマ -- Japanese TV shows), but that doesn't really solve the basic problem.
