Is this a deal or a scam? (I am specifically looking for external not internal)

I see no indications of this being a scam. Why would you think it was?

Yeah....why bother buying that? The local Office Max/CompUSA/Circuit City sells it for less by me...and on eBay, even cheaper...heck, if you do rebates at stores, you can get an 80GB for $5-$10...I just got my 160 GB for $22.37 ($.37 rebate postage!)

**Pssst! It's about $30 more for external...but you can get a free case "after reabte!"
