I have a 4-year old DELL desktop with a heavy CRT monitor that I'm going to give away soon . I also have a 2 month old laptop. Both computers run Linux/SuSE. I would like to buy an external disk to save most of my s/w development now residing on my old desktop. But I would like to be able to use it also with my laptop. Both computers have some USB ports so I daresay an external USB disk would be fine .. I'd appreciate some suggestion about a USB reliable, large capacity but portable, external disk or any alternative solution.
Well, judging from your email date, that Dell must be at least 6 years old by now. ;-)
I recently bought an Adaptec 3.5" USB case for $20 (CDN). It will hold any 3.5" IDE drive.
