Default Hard drive from newegg!

I need a harddrive from new egg for under $80! and fast so i can order early in hopes it will be shipped today and get here by friday!

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3250620AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

what does (Perpendicular Recording) mean? anything spechial or bad? I just need a normal internal drive to put in my broken computer in hopes that it will help with my computer issues.
or if anyone knows of a great HD for under $80 let me know!

This is the actual Definition of it, Perpendicular recording - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. it is a good thing by the way. and Seagate is a good choice, Good luck!

The Seagate you chose will serve your needs just fine, cheaper isn't always better
