    200GB is a size usual for 7200rpm drives instead of the usual 5400rpm like the 320GB is likely to be so that may explain the different in price. 160GB and 250GB are common 5400rpm sizes so maybe look at those.

    Did toshiba say what would happen if you used a bigger drive? If it just cuts off at the 200GB mark it may be worth going for the 250GB one over a 160GB one.
