To keep it short and to the point, I'm looking at Dell...and they offer a "250GB 7200rpm FIPS Encrypted Hard Drive." for storage.
Now obviously, the price of this encrypted hard drive is about $100 more than a non-encrypted HD of the same capacity.
I can just as easily buy a non-encrypted hard drive, load TrueCrypt on it...full disk encryption...and it's free.
Wouldn't Truecrypt serve the same purpose as this FIPS encrypted HD..of course without me spending a dime on encryption?
