I originally bought a Maxtor 320gb hard drive about 2 years ago, as the laptop I was running at the time had a desperately poor hard drive installed. Essentially, my laptop only contained boot up files and everything else I ran came from the external hard drive. Although I appreciate this is a slightly odd way of running a laptop, it worked very well. I had concerns over whether or not the hard drive could take the constant use for a number of hours a day, especially seeing as they are only really designed for back-up storage.

It's easy to use (even for those who are a bit nervous with hardware) - you literally just plug it in (USB) and everything is done for you.
