Which one is the best pocket size external hard drive?

Salam,

Lately when I've uploaded a lot photos into my net book, there's a warning that keep appears on the screen saying "Your disc capacity is running low. You need to delete some files". (well something like that). Since I'm not really expert in understanding the terminologies in computer/technology, I asked my hubby's opinion. He's asked me to buy a pocket size external hard drive.

Now.......................the problem is..............................I'm not so confident in choosing the right kind of external hard drive as I'm not sure which one is the best for me. I only need the expansion in storing more photos, personal videos and maybe some songs too. I don't think I want to upload any movies as I rather go out with my family members to a cinema to watch movies. tu pun bukan selalu gi tengok 


SO......LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OUT THERE...............PLEASE IF YOU ARE KIND ENOUGH...............PLEASE SHARE YOUR OPINION ON THIS.

ADVICE ME ON THE BEST POCKET SIZE EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE:
(I've complied these info from GOOGLE)

saya ada beli external hard disk masa kerja dulu sebab waktu tu pulun download movies from office (teruk tak perangai...?)

150G ke 200G sy pun dah lupa Nur... brand pun dah lupa jenis SATA...

tak kisah Nur macamana pun ikut budget semuanya jenis handy, beli dengan casing dan masuk dlm handbag

sekarang capacity lebih besar dan harga pun lebih murah ...
