Help Me Choose: Hard Drive

The Hard Drive is where the operating system, software applications, files and data are stored on a PC.

When choosing storage for you new Dell desktop, you should keep a few things in mind:

1. What do I want to do today, next week or even in the next few years from now?

2. Plan today for the activities you want to do tomorrow. (If you don’t have a video camera, do you think you will at some point?)

3. Content keeps growing – new technology will require greater storage capacity.
