Ugh, money issues here too, ATM.

But if it's just the power plug, no problem.  Splitters are available.  
Data connections are different, tho.  If you're out of those, you're out, 
unless you have a PCI(E) slot to stick an expansion card in, and if 
you're out of those too...  And of course if your power supply simply 
doesn't have the power to spare... but 2.5 inch drives tend to be power 
sippers as they're designed for battery use, and if you're running /that/ 
close to the edge, power-wise, you're risking instability anyway.

But of course hard drives themselves cost money, and if things are as 
tight for you as they are for me right now...

But it's nice if you have the few extra $$ for it...
