    My observation of Best Buy and the like is that a new hard disk costs about $100, and that this has been roughly constant for several years now.

    The amount of space you get for that Franklin has grown steadily (though not quite at Moore's famous rate). However, the stores (manufacturers?) seem strangely resistant to holding the size constant and letting the price fall.

    A 40GB disk should be under $50, but just isn't on the shelf. Conspiracy? Most of the cost is in the electronics?
