Most netbooks ship with 160GB to 250GB of storage space. Get a pricier, larger laptop and maybe you’ll get a 320GB or 500GB hard drive. But what if you want enough hard disk space to store 120HD videos? Then you might want to look into getting an external hard drive, like say, the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk hard drive, which is now available in 1TB, 2TB, and 3TB varieties.
The 3TB model is the first external hard drive I’m aware of that comes with quite so much storage on one disk. You can pick one up today from Seagate for $250, but I suspect if you wait a little longer you’ll be able to find it for a few bucks off from other retailers.
The hard drive connects to your computer over a USB 2.0 connection, although the Seagate press release mentions the ability to upgrade to Firewire or USB 3.0.
