    Sounds great, but you realize that you have 1/3 of a terabyte of storage in your mobile computing system?

    I know some people have lots of files but you can probably go with something smaller there.

          Id go with a drive that is large enough to store your mp3s and OS and apps. Then get and external usb drive to store movies on it.

              Just throw that 300GB into an external USB enclosure and your set. Movies take up alot of space so 300GB is good.

                the only thing im afraid of is that if I lose that external hard drive thats a lot of money to lose and sometimes im careless. I dont know. Yeah movies are what 700-900+megs. a gig a movie.

                  I think it isnt too bad. But I don't know if I would be able to full that thing up!!
                  I only probable need a 40gb one since I am going to go with a slot-loading DVD drive. How about doing that?

                    why go with a smaller drive?
