Now a days for gaming, I wouldn't have anything that's not a least 1TB. I see they suggest a 2TB as an additional purchase. One game can run 60 to 80 GB, plus space used by the OS which is about to get a lot larger according to Microsoft.
Check the laptop to see if it has space for a hard drive--and also if it has space for another M.2 SSD. If it does, then they should work, but some laptops won't have space for that.Those hard drives are actually more expensive than a 500 GB SSD would be. So they really only make sense if not only is 1/4 TB not enough space, but even 3/4 TB isn't enough, either. And if that's not enough, then I'd question what you're doing with the laptop.There are legitimate reasons to get a lot of storage space in a laptop, but depending on how she uses it, I'd also consider:1) Deciding that 250 GB is enough and leaving the laptop as it is,2) Adding another SSD of 250 GB-1 TB to get the extra storage, or3) Adding an external hard drive instead, if the extra space won't be used frequently.
Apart from those tips and recommendations, I would suggest going for a cloud storages as you could access them from anywhere through any device too. You got backup support too.Think about it!!
