Sorry I do not have a Brand Name here

but I need to double check something, . . .

What will I expect to pay for a, "ST3160813AS", HD ?

Sorry for the dumb question but as I have found this , from Seagate although it is out of Stock, I am seeing the price around 30 dollars, . . when I go to Office Max
there prices always seem much higher.

It's a Seagate Barracuda 7200 160 GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 8MB Cache 3.5 Inch Internal Hard Drive.

I don't think you'll find that model in Office Max.

Well that's a pretty good price, for here in the U.S. but comparatively, my Maxtor which is a smaller capacity cost at least twice that much, . . I don't really understand but I think I won't question it, I only hope that price deal will extend to the Philippines. !

Thanks Much !

Buying a 160GB HDD seems silly; they can often be more expensive than 320 or 500GB models.
