If someone wanted to carry as many people as possible for fixed amount of
money, it could very well be.

If walked into a computer store and priced a SCSI and IDE drive, the results
would be as I reported.

The SCSI drive I used was the same model that Eizo bought and used for his
example. It is priced in the same ballpark as similar Seagate and Quantum
drives. I took the wholesale price of that SCSI drive and found the nearest
match in wholesale price of a 7200 rpm IDE drive, which in this case was a
100gb Maxtor. They matched within $5. The Maxtor is not a cheap IDE drive.
It's cost is about average for IDE drives. Some brands like Samsung and
Fujitsu typically cost less. My comparision did not show that SCSI drives
have a typically higher markup than IDE drives.
