3. Your laptop only comes with 32gb of "hard disc" space

which is really low in this day and age. The operating system alone will eat up nearly half of that.

You will want to buy an external USB hard drive, preferably 3.0 but 2.0 will work (you have two USB 3.0 ports and one 2.0 ports) and preferably 1tb or larger. You’ll plug the external HD into one of the USB ports and then keep ALL of your data on that disc. Direct all your internet downloads to a folder on that disc, all your music, photos, everything but computer programs will go on the new external.

Hope that helps.
