An external HD should definetly be small enough to fit in your pocket and sturdy enough to take a drop to the floor or two or three. Otherwise, you might as well get an internal one, I think .. at least as long as cabinet space allows for it! It's cheaper and won't clutter your desk.

Probably, but it was about a year ago that I bought it, so it's probably a lot cheaper by now. Either way, it's definitely sturdy and portable enough to be of pretty good use.

I think I only had about 10GBs on my computer hard-drive and 500ish CDs about 2 years ago. And then I joined MB

Not compared to some people. Plus, considering I'd got them all over the course of about 10 years, it's not really that much.

I've never really bought many CD's in my life time. Only about 30. But I've had to of downloaded atleast 200,000 songs in my life.

One of the main reasons for me to get an external hard drive was so I could easily transfer music over to friend's computers, or take it with me to a party and have a portable entertainment center. Besides music I've got TV shows, movies, a crap load of RPG books in pdf format, and quite a few comic series. No way I'm carting around my desktop every time someone wants something of mine and it's far easier than putting things onto CD's, especially with the movies and tv shows.

Fair enough, I'm sure also the smaller size played a part. My TB hard drive isn't small enough to go into a pocket and has some pretty hefty weight to it, however it is certainly not monolith in size.

I keep all of my stuff on an external hard drive ... I like to live on the edge.

External is the way to go, unless you drop your laptop on top of your external hard drive, like I did a few weeks ago, lol.
