I researched this quite a bit a few years ago before I built my original
mp3 player for car use. I settled on Maxtor 3.5 inch desktop hard drives,
based on the operating spec.
4 years later, I have never had a problem with that drive, and it survived
a 50 MPH head-on collision last week. I don't know if the drive recal'ed
when I hit, but the music never stopped.
That's rugged enough for me. And my neck hurts.
Sure, laptop drives are more rugged. I'm not going to "test" it :)
