Yesterdays paper had a pullout proclaiming back to school discounts. One of the items advertised was Seagate 320 GB freeagent, external hard drive with a marked price of 7000 and a 30% off being sold at 4599. I was impressed and decided to take the plunge into "unlimited" HDD space. With a capacity of 4 times my existing, HDD and nearly as cheap as my 80GD backup drive purchased once upon a time, it seemed to be a great idea. And then I decided to check on the net.

Of course, it is available for lesser at most places - including e-bay. So, impulse purchasing postponed thanks to the internet. I will wait for the 1 TB solution.
Message for stores: Please understand, people have learnt to compare prices in Indial. If your discounted price is below the price of other dealers, well, you know what will happen.
