This holiday season, considering getting an external hard drive for someone who uses a computer but does not routinely back up his/her computer. External hard drives have gotten so inexpensive recently and you can find some great deals on the Internet. I would suggest a 2.5" USB hard drive that is at least 320GB for someone who takes many digital pictures and also keeps video camcorder files on his/her computer. A 500GB is even better (and you're only looking at a price difference of approximately $30).
Some of my personal favorites include the following 2.5" USB hard drives:
- Seagate FreeAgent Go
- Iomega Prestige
- Western Digital My Passport
