Best Buy is selling a 4TB WD portable drive for $100 today

This WD model offers a whole lot of storage for backups and extra files that won't fit on your main storage drive.

Don't kid yourself. It's 2017 and that 1TB external hard drive for backups and extra storage just doesn't cut it anymore. Right now, Best Buy can solve that problem for a little cheaper than usual: The big box retailer is selling a portable 4TB WD easystore external hard drive for $100.

That's not quite the deal we saw in April when Best Buy had a desktop easystore 4TB drive on sale for $90, but today's deal is still a good buy. Though Easystore is a Best Buy exclusive, its non-Best Buy counterpart--the WD Elements line--is currently about $40 more expensive on Amazon.

This drive features a USB 3.0 connection, and of course it features that specialty connector on the hard drive enclosure. As with other WD drives, it comes with its own backup software and some drive utilities. Personally, I like to blow out all of that stuff as soon as I get a new external hard drive, but some of you may appreciate the extra programs.

The drive measures 0.83 x 3.21 inches, and it weighs about 8 ounces. PC owners running Windows 7 and up can use it straight out of the box, but Mac users will have to reformat it before use. (It's formatted as NTFS.)

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
