i thought 80GB was a lot, usually basic. then i got to download some more stuff get more games, 3dmark alone is 300MB anyways i decided to buy another one, filled that one up too, so i need some more money lol

but it will be good for basic home, writing essays, pictures, music

if you are downloading movies, or using a dvd burner, 80 gigs is ample, but dont use 40 gigs like me!

I'm living with 20 GB. I would rather have more as I have to limit my downloading. 80 should be fine.
