I was curious about what size hard drives people here have,

I have twin 250Gb Seagate SATA Hard Drives
and a 80Gb SATA Hard Drive in my Mac

I am saving up for a large 1 Terabyte USB Drive :D

All sorts of them laying around, mostly 80 or 120. 1TB hard drives are only like $140 now.

Let's see...

Apple Macintosh LC II: 40MB
Packard Bell Legend: 420MB
HP Pavilion 4535: 5GB
HP Pavilion [family]: 120GB
MacBook Pro: 200GB

Most of my hard drives are around 4GB lying around the house. I also have that dead 40GB IBM Desk Star hard drive, which I highly do not recommend ever purchasing. But 40 GB is pretty much all I really need for everything I use, music, OS, and files combined.

Looks like everyone tops out at 1.8TB. I have a 1TB external (but currently set to mirroring, so 500GB effectively), then a 240 and an 80. I also have a 160 that's inoperable, but I want to get it working again someday (tons of stuff on it).

My girl friend says the size doesn't matter, it's how you use it.
