I remember when SATA was the shiny new technology and the old IDEs were ubiquitous. Now, it's the other way around. I need to replace the hard drive on the dog-old laptop. The number of PATA 2.5" drives available these days is pretty low, and a WD 320GB PATA drive costs around £75. The equivalent SATA version is £35, which is cheaper than the 45 quid the 120GB IDE version will set you back. Sheesh.
