Back it up: Seagate portable hard drive
If you've ever lost your data, you know the mantra by heart. Back it up. I have a relatively low-tech home, no sexy servers pumping out that sweet ambient lullaby we all know so well. I'm able to survive without servers because I keep my data backed up, and the new Seagate FreeAgent Go portable hard drive is a great buy for anyone who doesn't keep a server in their home.
Well-designed, and Mac and Windows compatible, FreeAgent Go is lightweight (6 oz) and small (4x5 inches, less than 1 in think). It comes in three sizes (80, 120, and 160 GB). Simple to use, there are two USB connectors (data transfer and power-sharing from your computer).
If you haven't had that moment where your motherboard forsakes you, FreeAgent Go gives you a great excuse to start practicing wise technique.
Price: 89.99 for the 80GB model at Amazon (Amazon carries other sizes as well).
