File: 1586771322121.jpg -(2197840B / 2.10MB, 3264x2448) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. SURFACE LAPTOP 3 HARD DRIVE ccc......
TLDR: any surface 3 hard drive solutions if too tiny.

Has anyone tried an external on the surface 3?
LAPTOP, not the tablet.

because I have some complaints about the size of the hard drive as it's not the default TB that you'll find to be most common on systems nowadays.
like its the default size.

only one game from the steam store can be installed on it before you pretty much run out of space.

and i thought about an external but im not sure if you can install and boot up an .exe from it ? Like steam? while the OS runs on the machines HD?

or would I need to boot up windows from the new hard drive and that would NOW be my new hard drive if i decide to go that route?

I think standard is still 500GB spinning disks but that's only for bottom of the barrel laptops. That laptop has an M.2 drive that you can upgrade.

500GB is pretty standard for SSDs.

It's usually the lowest capacity that's actually fully populated and doesn't suffer a speed penalty, plus it's plenty big to go with a hard drive, and who isn't using external hard drives in general these days?

1TB is pretty standard for an SSD if you want to be self-sufficient, but anything with an internal hard drive these days should be 2TB or more, because what's even the point otherwise?
