Laptop hard drive

I'm looking for a hard drive for my laptop for game storage. Are there any good 2tb laptop hard drives, or should I just get a 1tb WD Black. I have a 250gb 850 evo as a boot drive. I mainly use my desktop so 2 TB isn't necessary. The laptop is more for just gaming on the go.

Thanks

You can get good 2tb laptop drives but they're all way over $200 compare to the $60 of a 1tb 2.5" drive.

IMO the best option is to get a USB HDD enclosure to use with your desktop and laptop if you need the storage and or just get a 1tb 2.5" drive.

Edit: on my on the go gaming laptop I have a 120 gig SSD and a 1tb HDD and I've never had any problems but I also mainly use my desktop with almost 9tb of storage.

Thanks, that's where I was leaning, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. I used to have two 1tb drives in my laptop, but they're about dead, and now that I primarily use my desktop I really don't need 2tb internal storage.
