Hard Drives are simply where items are held even when they aren't being used. You could consider it like a storage closet. You will store a lot of things in this closet, even things that you don't use often. This is how hard drives are used. They store everything on your computer, even stuff that isn't being used often. Generally, people view hard drives from a capacity standpoint, the bigger the better. Up until the last five years or so, it was very important to look at this feature. However, as of now, almost any computer you buy that is new will have more than enough space. To give you some perspective, one large game (generally one of the largest types of software) can take up 1 or 2 gigs (the unit of measure) of space. You probably wouldn't be able to find a new computer with less than a 160GB hard drive today. That would personally be my limit for the minimum size of a hard drive for a new pc.
