Removable Hard Drive

It seems it would be more expensive for them to use laptop HD as well, but maybe not.

And I bet somebody made it very expensive.
120GB IDE HD would cost £60.
40GB laptop drive would also cost £60.
120GB laptop drive would cost a lot more than £60.

So, logical conlusion, a 2.5" (laptop standard) hardrive or a custom drive. The custom drive would just add unncessecary cost to MS with no obvious benefit but to stop people like us. I'm pretty suure it will be a 2.5" harddrive

Seeing as it is all official info with it been owned my M$ then I would say it is accurate.

It may be a specialty one, iPod hard drives are literally tiny and it'd be a waste of space in that enclosure they have. J Allard said somewhere that they'd worked out every part so they'd make profit, so maybe they've found a cheap source of 2.5" hard drives. I don't think they'd make a specialty one unless they found a company to do it for cheap and maybe even take out some standard PC parts as it'd only need to work in the xbox, but then again theres not much you can take out.
Theres no point to hack it until a modchip comes out, which may be a while. 20 gig is ok for what it'll be used for without the chip, so theres no need to hack it yet (even though its not out )

I'd have to say the convenience and flexibility of storing and running all my games on a hard drive without having to insert a disc is more of a reason for modding than anything. Not to mention all the other benefits.
Oh and the 360 will have a remote on-off feature from the wireless controllers. . .*drool* so that means once you sit down to game it'll be like football, get your snacks, drinks and extra controller battery packs and you don't have to get up for nothing but nature. . .damn nature.

2: Size - If M$ Want you to save games on there it's gotta be large - 3.5" is restrictive.
3: Cost - 3.5" or 2.5" will put the price up.
4: SATA on a 3.5" ? really ? ... expensive at best.
SATA, probably, normal/modded normal size more than likely.
The DVD on the other hand will most likely be a smaller type from the photos I've seen although again, this would restrict performance.
It's mostly rumours and suposition at the moment anyway ! lol

Then I believe there is a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, or one could be made with the following information HD Info
So unless it's custom, it'd be easy to hook another HD up to it. As long as the modchip could find a way to bypass the security.
