i forget who they are made by (but they make drives for the ipod, and stuff) and those are 1.8", but they also make .8" drives too. pretty small, they use a zif connector.

Those 0.8 inch drives are interesting.... Not sure WHY you would want one.... 2 or 4 Gigs, MECHANICAL drives.... I don't think something that small would be very durable... you would be better off with a flash drive, no moving parts, faster read/write, and greater capacity.

it uses that colored seagate on the pic I posed earlier. any hdd smaller than the laptop hdd should be pretty good, because those things are micro to begin with (heck even a 3.5 is small in my opinion)
