Buying Extra Hard Drive Space
If you happen to read my previous post from July 23rd you'll remember me complaining that our old dinosaur of a computer needs many hardware updates. To add to the list of items we need to buy an external hard drive. Our computer has been running slow and my hubby feels we need to update our memory. I'm really impressed with these little gadgets. They are the size of a paper back book and they take up very little space. If we decide to buy more then one they nest neatly together just like books on a shelf. I've read they are easy to set up. There is no installation required. All you have to do is plug them into an available USB port. Did I hear no installation required? That's all I needed to hear and I'm sold. The hard drive we have been looking at has 500GB of space and the price is running around $100.00. That's not bad price wise. The best part is that these drives are energy efficient. My husband and I are always looking for ways to save on our electric bill. I'm sure we will be taking a visit this weekend to our local electronics store to check out what they have on sale. Wish us luck.
