Hmmm.. he didn't have his in quotes..
And without a comma, "they're" references the word preceding it.

Hmmm ...

Yeah, unless you go with the tower (they're POS laptop drives)

or

Yeah, unless you go with the tower -- they're POS laptop drives.

Is how you're interpreting things. But I'm thinking no punctuation at all was correct usage for what Jim meant to convey ...

But to be honest, they both read pretty much the same ... the comma you added seems more a phrasing pause than an actual change of meaning ...

Of course, "Yeah, they're POS laptop drives unless you go with the tower" might have been less ambiguous to begin with =)
