After stopping for lunch at the Popeye's along the way (and playing pinball -- good value for the $2 I put into the machine; we got a lot of play out of ti -- we went to Fry's in Wilsonville to buy a new hard drive for one of Lisa's laptops and get some other things. What we decided we'd actually do is clone my existing hard drive into the 160 GB drive -- the smallest drive available -- and then use my existing 120 GB drive in Lisa's laptop that needs a new drive. I started to open the box with the drive in it when it suddenly dawned on me that I'd bought a desktop hard drive, not a laptop one.
Large-scale *headsmack* I mean, it's not that exchanging it will be that difficult, as I still have the receipt, but it's something like 50 miles up to Wilsonville, darn it.
Actually, putting a 120 GB drive into a older Toughbook is total overkill, but I didn't bring any of the surplus-to-requirements 30 and 40 GB drives sitting around the apartment in Fremont with me.
