Yesterday, my mom bought a portable hard drive to store all of her documents, photos, videos, etc. She wanted to be able to take all of her files with her wherever she went. She ended up getting the Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB external portable USB hard drive for $119.99, a great deal for 500gb of portable storage.
The great thing about the small portable USB hard drives is that they don’t require an additional power source; they power themselves from the laptop. This means you can access your portable hard drive wherever you are, even if there’s no outlet nearby.
It’s a great little hard drive, about 1/3rd the size of a small paperback book. If you need to have portable access to a large quantity of files, this is the kind of thing you need.
