Despite the over-hyped claims that the world HDD supply is in ruins you can still buy a 2Tb HDD for about $80, so it's a bit of a sad excuse.
Also, this advise would really be best for new buyers, rather than those who were so cheap they only got the 40Gb to start with, fully aware that 40Gb is not sufficient and it would cause them storage issues in the future. I have no sympathy for you.
