Look what I found: A One TeraByte External Harddrive!

But I'm not very technical and so, but unless you have firewire 800 in your system, the data-throughput is crap.

You won't be saying that in about three years or so. Rumor has it that Longhorn will need 8.6 GB to install. Even if that's untrue... man, that is a freakin 1 000 000 000 000 bytes!!!

No Xen, when talking about hard drive space and RAM, there is only too small, there is no too large.

1 TB = 1,024 GB = 1,048,576 Mb = 1,073,741,824 Kb = 1,099,511,627,776 Bytes

Unfortunatly the manufacturers always use the same figure as you in there calculations, so technicaly this hard drive is probably 90Gb short of 1 TB

i really hate when they do that

Yes, I know, a Terabyte is actually closer to a terabit than an actual terabyte, but hey, what can I say?
