Hah, I'd love to find them that cheap retail.

Both Queensway Computer Markets and the Tottenham Court Road shops
seem to think it's still 2006 when it comes to hard disk pricing. I
was quoted #55 (about $80) for a bog standard 80GB 3.5" SATA disk in
one place. You could probably hear me laughing in their face from the
other side of the Atlantic.
