Welcome to Thursday’s edition of CHEAP, where I’m doing whorage for some storage. I’m getting psyched for some gigabytes. We’re having some pageantry for capacity. I’m…

Actually, that’s all I’ve got. Rhyming is really bloody hard.

Today we’re looking at Western Digital’s 6TB Elements desktop hard drive, which is on sale on Amazon for $109.99. That’s a tasty 42 percent discount on the usual list price of $189.99.

External hard drives aren’t exactly the most exotic tech product, but they’re undeniably handy, especially when you consider that laptops are coming with ever-shrinking internal storage. Let’s be honest, your MacBook’s 128GB SSD isn’t nearly big enough to store your ever-expanding collection of games, movies, and songs.

A desktop HDD, like this tasty little number, will let you store more stuff. Plus, you can use it as a backup drives, allowing you to recover your all-important files if catastrophe strikes. 6TB is more than enough for Apple’s Time Machine, for example.

If you’re quick, you can grab the Western Digital 6TB Elements on Amazon US for $109.99. Hurry!
