Perfect Storage Solution For Me

You all know that I am addicted to photography, which means I take an excessive amount of photos. Well, I am beginning to get concerned that I am taking too much space on my new laptop to store all the photos I take.

So, I started asking my photography friends how they store their photos. One option is to burn my photos to CDs or DVDs for storage. However, with the amount of photos I take, that would take forever, and it would also become very expensive, because I would use up a lot of discs.

No matter how hard I try, I cannot bring myself to delete the cute photos, such as this...

Just imagine how many photos I will have once I get that dream camera!

So, one of my very dear friends gave me a better option for storing my photos. He said I should purchase an external hard drive for storing my photo and music files. That sounds like the best solution, and I found an awesome one!

Just look at this beauty...
You know the most beautiful part about this hard drive? Yeah, the blue LED strip is pretty awesome. However, the most beautiful thing about it, in my opinion, is the fact that it has 750 GB of storage! Oh yeah! I could store ALL of my current photos, in addition to all my future photos, and still have room for all of our music files too!

It would be so great to have everything stored in one place and free up the space on my computer.

Yep, I definitely think this LaCie USB 2.0 7200RPM Desktop External Hard Drive, complete with 1-click backup software, would be absolutely perfect for my needs. Especially now that I see what a great price it is, and the fact that I can get free shipping through buy.com.

Ya know, my birthday is coming up, and a couple of months after that is our anniversary. I better start making my lists. ;-)

Actually, I want to get one too so I can finally retire my desk top and be able to use my laptop for everything.

That is so cool! I want one of these too! My anniversary is coming up in a few months too, maybe I can hint about one of these.

I don't have an anniversary coming up or a birthday either for awhile but I definitely want one of those, too! I can tell all the pictures I've taken recently are really bogging down my laptop but until I win the lottery or meet a rich man (snicker on both!) then I guess it's going to be the old fashioned way for me and I need to start burning those CDs! But that external hard drive does look nice!

D...

We have an external hard drive for our pictures and music. I love it! I don't have to worry about a virus wiping out the hard drive or running out of space. Of course, mine doesn't have that many gb. I would LOVE to have that!

Yup! That's really the best solution. I'll be getting one soon because of the amount of music I've been putting on my laptop.
