I use a small notebook and 2 external 500 GB notebook size hard drives. I just recently purchased a Acer One mini laptop and I am very happy with it. It runs XP, along with breeze browser, downloader pro, and photoshop elements. I download to the notebook then copy the files to each of the eaternal drives. After copying I now have 2 copies of each file and delete the original from the notebood for the nextr days work.
