OK, following on from a thread here, it looks like I'm going to have to get a new hard drive.
1TB seems a good size for me, but I'd like some suggestions as to good HDDs/brands and SPEED that would be worth my while spending money on to get the most out of my (relatively new) machine.
It's a Dell XPS L502X with the following specs:
2.3 GHz i5 CPU (2 cores, 4 threads)
1GB Nvidia GT 525M video card
...and the OS will be Windows 7. Also, best brands - IIRC Western Digital are the bees knees?
Thanks in advance!
