If you are on the lookout for the best laptop, look no further than MacBook. Boasting of 16GB memory running at 2133MHz, 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, and a Force Touch trackpad, it is arguably the best laptop available in the market. Obviously, as with any Mac products, this laptop is quite expensive. However, you can seek help from Apple and some other financial companies that offer macbook pro finance, which allows you to purchase the laptop by paying the cost of the computer in easy monthly instalments. You need to be of legal age and a resident of the United Kingdom, be in full time employment, and a UK based bank account that is capable of accepting direct debits. You can either complete the formalities at a physical store or on an online store. In case of the latter, the store will deliver the computer to your home. However, there is one more thing that you should include in your purchase list... a portable hard disk drive.

Data storage

The hard disk drive (HDD) of your computer, like all other electromechanical devices, has a mean time between failures. However, thanks to the latest technology employed in manufacturing HDDs, this period has increased a lot over the years. In fact, you can easily expect the HDD of your computer to run faultlessly for years on end without complaining. However, it is not the same with the data stored in it. When you first store files in the HDD, the read write head writes the information in its platter in concentric circles, starting from the centre of the platter and moving towards its edge. The head writes the information on small segments of the platter known as sectors. It also passes the information about the location of the data to a TOC (table of content). Each time you try to retrieve the data, the operating system seeks its location in the TOC (which acts just like the content page of a book), and moves the read write head to the relative sector.


File not accessible

Although the data is neatly arranged when you are using a brand new drive, problems begin when you delete data and do not defrag the drive once every few weeks. In such a scenario, be prepared to experience a shock when you are unable to access a particular file or several files. As you delete data from the drive, it clears the sector(s) in which it was stored. The next time you write data, the write head tries to store it in the first available free sector. If the file size is bigger than the free space, the write head moves on to the next free space and this process continues until the entire data is stored. Power spikes during the read write process can also corrupt data. You can use special data recovery software to restore the lost data, but this process is not foolproof. It is better to backup your data on an external hard drive, so that you can recover the corrupted data if required.
