Toshiba announced (i'm not related to them I promise ^^) a new 160gb one platter 1.8'' HDD (for the new ipod classic) : the mk1634gal. But you can't buy it yet...And btw, there is supposed to be a 30 000 maximum files number (if someon can confirm it would be nice) on the A3 so 160 gb maybe too much actually.
Watch out, there are other thin 1.88'' HDDs but mirco sata and not PATA/ZIF like needed for the A3 !
