Not really.

I shouldn't buy any _old_ drive. Otherwise, pretty much. I buy my 
drives from a cut-rate PC store in the area. If you ask those guys 
about Mac, they'll send you to MacDonald's. Just make sure it's new and 
under warranty. Charles' suggestion -- 120GB, 7200RPM, 8MB cache -- is 
what I'd get. As to brand, you'll hear passionate pro and con arguments 
about every major one.
