Excerpt: I have a Dell computer Dimension E520 which I bought several years ago, It is used primarily for business and for some personal use. It was brought to my attention by a Computer Technician that my hard drive was about to go. At first he recommended a hard drive with a lower capacity maybe 300 GB.
