Being a university student who goes to school away from home I always found myself burning numerous cds with all my impormant files and information on them. A friend of mine showed me his portable hard drive one day and I was amazing at how convenient they were. Smaller than a pack a cigarettes, it could easily fit into someone pocket or its easy to pack into any peice of luggage. It also comes with a leather case with adds for extra protection from any harmful objects. The greatest thing about the hard drive is the ample space it has which can store almost anything you need. By making the hard drive 100gb you can store thousands of songs, pictures, and videos, while also still providing enough space to store your important word or powerpoint documents. Being a studnet who is always on the go the portable hard drive is a great tool in order to keep all your information in one safe place.
