When you need external storage for your PC, you might as well go big: Best Buy has dropped the price of WD's 8TB easystore drive to $160.

The last time we saw this deal was early January, and as we acknowledged last time, this drive was cheaper in November during the Black Friday madness. However, this is still a good price. A similar drive sells for $20 more on Amazon right now.

WD's easystore drive features a promised data transfer rate of 5Gbps over USB 3.0, and comes with WD Backup software if you need help figuring out how to backup your PC's files. Otherwise you can use your favorite backup utility such as Windows 10's File History. This drive also has a two-year warranty.

Note that this is a desktop (not portable) hard drive, which means it requires its own power source as well as enough room to clear its 6.7-inch height and its 1.9-inch width.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

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.
