Just checked Newegg.com and discovered there is a promotion for the 500gb Momentus XT for $139 with a $50 off coupon code with Free Shipping.
That makes this drive priced at $90 delivered!
$50 off w/ promo code EMCJHJE23, ends 12/21

The promotion is running in Canada and elsewhere.
Why do I get a feeling that a new version of the Momentus XT 500gb is about to be released?

It is called ST500LX003 and it is already present in the Momentus XT 2nd gen Manual:

When the Thailand situation sorts out... these hybrid drives are going to be very affordable.
The original price of the XT2 was suppose to be $189.
Projected street price by Fall 2012:
Hybrid XT2 750gb: $150
Hybrid XT2 500gb: $120
