Chapter 40. Replacing, Upgrading, or Adding a Hard Disk Drive

Just as we've seen memory prices nose dive over the past few years, prices on hard disk drives have also dropped. In 1984, a Seagate 30MB hard disk drive cost around $350. Now you can easily pay less money for a drive 2,000 times larger and considerably faster.

Today, it's fairly common to see new PCs advertised with hard disk storage capacities in the 40GB to 80GB range. If the PC you are currently using has from 10GB to 30GB of disk storage (or less), you are long overdue for an upgrade. You will find that installing a hard disk drive in your PC is extremely easy.
