1.8 inch refers to the size of the hard drive, drives that go into desktop PCs are 3.5 inch, in most laptops is 2.5 inch and some ultra portable laptops and some MP3 players (think ipod video or creative zen vision M) have 1.8 inch drives. they are quite expensive because they are so small. that's why the price per GB is higher than a portable 2.5 inch drive and even more expensive than a common 3.5 inch desktop drive.

1.8" Vs 2.5" Vs 3.5"
(Two left are 1.8" I believe)

Cute drive. And assuming it's compatible, a very cheap graft for a dud ipod classic. I vote hot on the basis of that alone.

This cute little 1.8" jobbie http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3516347/Maxell-12GB-USB2-0-Portable-Hard-Drive-White/Product.html?P36=QESTPA&affid=hotukdeals&awc=buyat&_=tsid:11516|prd:hotukdeals [since discontinued] was £17.99 for 12Gb back in 2008, so at least there's a decent enough Gb/£ ratio now.

However I'd say, unless you particularly want the very small physical size, then a 'normal' portable 2.5" drive is much better value - e.g. 500Gb for under fifty quid these days.

Maybe it's the older technology of the former mentioned, but my little 12Gb will run quite hot after just a few minutes whereas any 2.5"er I've had is barely warm after a few hours use.

The reason it's get so hot is because it has less area and mass overall in which to spread the heat from the spindle.
