Default Laptop IDE hard drive

My old ThinkPad's drive finally blew, I've found some good drives on Newegg for $60-$70 that would give it over twice the space it had originally, but really I just want a cheap drive. Does anyone know of any place that sells IDE drives cheaper (even if they're only 30-40GB, that's what I'm replacing anyways), or would it be best to buy one of the drives I found on Newegg (80GB for $60).

Ebay? I've seen them at local computer shops. Not Worst Buy, but places that are local.

Here you go. You'll have to weed through the SATA drives though.
