How much drive space you got?
These days, drive space are almost dime a dozen. There was a time when retail prices where around Php1 per MB and a lot of storage manufacturers (Western Digital, Maxtor, Seagate, Fujitsu) are fighting teeth to teeth to deliver faster and higher capacity drives.
I have around a total of 360GB of storage space. (Make that 400GB if you add my 40GB iPod)
Back in 1999, I bought a 13GB 5400 rpm Seagate drive for about Php5,500. Now, I can get a Seagate 300GB Barracuda SATA at PC Express for Php500 more. That gives you 50MB per Philippine Peso (~50MB per dollar).
The 400GB and 500GB drives (7200 rpm with 8MB cache) are still a bit expensive. Villman sells them at Php13.5k and Php17.5k respectively.
That, despite the fact that Seagate has already merged with Maxtor last December.
Just wait ’til Flash drives become really cheap most laptops and PCs will have them instead of the slower EIDE/SATA drive.
