Humble request for some feed back re: hard drives
I have a MacBook 2GHz Intel Core duo
Presently has 80GB Hitachi hard drive
I know I want more storage space and I know I should have a back up.
Question is-- Upgrade internal hard drive (use old hard drive for back up) vs external hard drive as back up to existing hard drive? (As i write this am I answering my own question?-Get an external drive for backup and stay with present hard drive.) But, just in case I'm wrong, any thought/experiences regarding the below listed internal hard drives that I am considering for purchase. Thanks for any feed back that you all can give me.
