My cousin has been looking for a portable hard drives for weeks now and I thought I'd buy him one as a Christmas present...However I am not very hardware/computer savvy and one trip to my local PC world has had got me absolutely confused.
I just know I want to get him a 2.5" drive that chrages thru USB also and either a 320 or a 500 GB one. He has a Lenovo laptop with Intel processors (2/3 GB RAM). He needs it mostly for backing up his office work (lots of MS files - ppts, xls, word docs) and is also looking to use it to backup for his hugeeeeee music/movies collection.
I was looking at the IOMEGA and SEAGATE product range and I saw so many models
IOMEGA - Select / Prestige / Ego
SEAGATE - Freeagent / Expansion / Replica
Can someone advise me on what is the difference between all these models and which one would be the best choice for the gift?
My apologies if I've sounded a little thick in my post.
Thanks in advance,
