I've got an HP ZE4323EA laptop that i bought a couple of years ago (hard drive = 20Gb, memory = 128Mb Ram). I bought the computer for 'average' domestic use - writing CVs, checking emails, surfing the net. However, I bought a 20 GB iPod last year when i was in the States - the computer is now pretty much full of music, and there's now hardly any space for anything else. Has anyone got any suggestions for the best way to resolve this problem (not including my dad's, which is to forget the iPod and stick to CDs!) ?
I thought of:
- paying for someone to put in a new, larger hard drive
- moving all of my music to an external hard drive
Does anyone have experience of either of these options?
Also, the computer has USB 1 ports - will this be a problem with an external hard drive? and is there a way that i can update those as well?
It would be great to hear some views on this problem!
