Hard-Disk Buyers' Guide (JC)

Let's face it—your hard disk is full. How do we know? Well, if you're like us, you've probably built up a massive collection of MP3s and digitally edited a cinematic masterpiece of your vacation in Hawaii, and now you don't have enough space to install the latest version of Quicken. Even if you don't fall into that category, in general you need more disk space to do more things. But should you buy an internal hard disk to replace the shrinking one you currently own, or simply add another hard disk and use them both? Perhaps you want to connect your new drive externally to one of your Mac's peripheral ports. Buying a new hard disk is a hard choice, but sit tight as we help you make an informed decision.

What's Inside?

If you don't already know what kind of hard drive you have installed inside your Mac, your first mission is to find out. Knowing this will aid in choosing the proper interface and help you decide whether you need an internal or external drive.
