I've just bought myself a shiny new laptop to replace my ancient desktop and my almost as ancient existing laptop.
I thought, rather than completely ditch everything I have, I might as well try and re-use some of the bits, and so I though I could get an enclosure for one of the drives from one of the old machines and use it as an external backup for photos and so on.
I have a ~6 month old 80Gb 2.5" in the laptop and 3 year old 120Gb 3.5" in the desktop. I don't remember the brands.
Are the enclosures you can get (£10ish from what I've seen on a few sites) actually any good, or are they stupidly slow/hot/unreliable?
Any other ideas on what I can do with the old tech?
