3TB hard drive

Today, I have read a thread about 3TB hard drive that has discussed some strange terms of 3TB hard drive, such as GPT and MBR. I am really confused. What are they? I am really curious. Any ideas can be appreciated.

  1. Basically GPT supports larger hard drives than MBR. With a 3TB driver using MBR you will have to have more than one partition to get use of full disk. With GPT you can use the entire disk with one partition. These links give more technical details than I can.
