How much for the 2 TB? I need as much space as possible, and am worried that 3tb might not be enough. (I don't like to delete things)

The 1.5GB HDD are on sale, making their price cheaper.

Also what if there is an enthusiast who doesn't want to take up all of hit HDD bays, but still wants a little more space.

True, but IMO that isn't worth $40 to get 1TB less space just to have 1 bay used not 2. If you need to, there are USB bays, and add-on bays for a few cases.

just doesn't make sense to me...
