In most cases it's cheaper to buy the larger HD then a smaller one. Deponds on the size. I know I just bought a WD Caviar SE Serial ATA 120 GB SATA 8MB Cache. And I love it. Tho I wish MS would realize a lot of people are tired of Floppys.
Only set me back $150 CDN. And was only 10 more then the EIDE version of it.
The closest thing (sizewise, at least) is a Raptor.
No reason to not get an 80GB drive, they're usually faster, only a little bit more expensive, and have double the storage.

SATA is more of a high-end PC feature so I wouldn't think companies would waste time designing SATA models for the smaller drives. At least this seems to be the marketing theory on the Western Digital website.
