I'm Losing My Memory!

I've got a problem...
I'm using up all the memory on my laptop!!!
Seriously when I first got this laptop, I thought there would be no way I would ever use up all that memory, but when you use a camera that is over 14 megapixels, and you shoot in RAW + JPEG format (two large files are created for each photo), you start eating the memory... FAST.
I just don't know what to do. I've got a portable hard drive, but I've heard scary stories about people transferring everything to a portable hard drive and then the hard drive crashed and they lost everything. If I lost all my photos, you might as well shoot me! So, it is recommended to have at least two backups... but, as I just stated, that would require hard drives with a lot of memory... a.k.a. expensive!
So, I just don't know what to do... I don't want to use up all my laptop memory, but I also don't want to risk losing my data.
My other problem... my laptop keys are getting wore out and they continue to pop off the keyboard. Yes, I know, I know - it's because I use it too much... but, hey, I use this for two of my three jobs! It's mainly the vowels (especially the "a" key) - so, if my posts start looking funny because there are no vowels in the words, you'll know what's going on!

Burn those photos to DVD! You could burn at least two of all of them. And use that external hard drive. That might cover it.

I have a maxtor that stores excess store. I also burn everything I need to discs just in case. There are online photo storage places, or you can get online photo places to burn stuff for you. Really worth doing. I've lost stuff in the past and it's no fun.
