PUNK: CHAOS TO COUTURE
The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) has a new exhibit opening May 9 and running through August 14, 2013. PUNK: Chaos to Couture, organized by Andrew Bolson, takes a look at the impact punk has had on high fashion. It begins at the movement's birth in the 1970s all the way through its continuing influence today. Designers continue to use punk's aesthetic vocabulary to capture its rebellion and forcefulness, even though it stands in opposition of fashion's autocracy.

THE BIG UNVAILING
The Museum's Costume Institute Benefit will take place on Monday, May 6, to celebrate the opening of the exhibit. The Co-Chairs of the event are Rooney Mara (Academy Award nominated actress), Lauren Santo Domingo, (Co-Founder of Moda Operandi), Riccardo Tisci (Creative Director of Givenchy), and Anna Wintour (Editor-in-Cheif of Vogue). The event is the main source of funding for exhibitions, acquisitions, and capital improvements for The Costume Institute

THE EXHIBITION
Featuring approximately 100 designs for men and women, the exhibit compares the original punk clothing from the 1970s to more recent, directional fashion to show how haute couture and ready-to-wear have borrowed punk's visual symbols. To focus on the relationship between the punk concept of "do-it-yourself" and the couture concept of "made-to-measure," the exhibition will be organized around the materials, techniques, and embellishments associated with the rebellious style. Seven galleries are organized thematically with designated punk 'heroes' who embody the broader concepts behind the fashion in a immersive multimedia, multisensory experience. Themes include New York and London, Clothes for Heroes, and four manifestations of the D.Y.I aesthetic.

You may have to spend some time looking around on the Internet and doing some comparison shopping so that you can find a hard disk for sale that will satisfy your expectations and meet your needs as well, before you make a determine you can just know about the laptop hard drive cost in the field. Using a laptop means that you're going to need enough space to store your files, install your software and do everything that you want to do on the computer. There a lot of things to consider when you purchase a new hard drive for your laptop. Below, you will find with some of these things are and why it's important to shop around for hard disk drives for sale so that you can find the precise laptop hard drive that you want to buy.

1,Look for a hard disk drive that has enough space to meet your needs
Knowing how much space you need on your hard drive can be a difficult thing. Often times, people don't think they need much space but then they come to realize that they needed more than they originally thought. For instance, some people think that they just need to purchase a hard drive that is going to cover their files. For instance, if they have about 10 gigabytes of files, they may purchase just a 20 to 40 gigabyte hard drive. The problem with this is that you are not accounting for the operating system. If you plan to run an operating system like Linux or Windows on the computer, then you need to purchase a hard drive that has enough space to properly run the operating system and store your files. There are other things to keep in mind as well, for instance, what software are you going to be putting on the computer? Software can take up a lot of space on a computer, especially games and software that is very complex. These types of software titles can get up into several gigabytes of space, so you need to have a big enough hard drive to accommodate for these applications.

2,Remember that it's okay to go over what you need but it's not okay to go under
Of course, you can easily see there are so many laptop hard drive for sale online, when purchasing a hard drive, it's okay to purchase more gigabytes than you actually need, just like me, I love installing lots of games, so I bought a big sony laptop hard drive in advance. However, if you were to purchase less gigabytes than you actually need, this is not going to be okay because you won't be able to do the things that you want to do on your computer. Be sure to shoot for more disk space. Keep in mind that installing a hard drive on a laptop can be more complicated than installing a hard drive on a desktop computer. You also need to accommodate for the installation costs when you're going to have a company install this for you. Look online and do some comparison shopping so that you can find the best laptop hard drive for a price that makes sense for your budget.
