External hard drive
I want a small footprint external hard drive for storage only - no extra software for backup, etc. what do you recomend?
Any's as good as any other, really. Trawl Newegg and pick something that looks nice and doesn't have awful reviews.
Also, try to get something that's not just USB 2.0. I like eSATA, personally, because I'm willing to plan ahead and turn my external drive on before I restart, but if you want plug-and-play go for USB 3.0 (if your computer has a port, of course) or FireWire (1394).
