Freeagent Go 320gb drive -- $69.99
Freeagent Go Dock -- $13.19

Ground Shipping $4.95

total -- 88.13


And it has multiple USB ports, so you don't even have to get the $70 drive

So $7 cheaper than root and 5 cents cheaper on shipping (also bhphoto 
will send it UPS ground, while woot will ship it Fedex Saver)
