 Extending old laptop storage - Rudedog
I have an old Apple laptop that suits my usage but has a small (for today's standards) hard drive of 160gb.

My HD is over 75% full so my basic performance is suffering (only doing web browsing, bit of music and photos).

I've cleared off some large files which has improved things so I was thinking that if I bought a large USB external drive I could try getting well below 50% used on my drive.

Looking on Ebay there are so many of various capacities for under £30.

Any recommendations?

Should I go for a brand name or buy unbranded?

I'm thinking of a SSD rather than chance a failure of a traditional HD.
