Got it on recommendation from @Nishant and @vedantlath. Vedant helped me install and configure. Right now it's able to connect to VPN and download torrents. I also plan to use it to keep the Reliance Broadband auto-login script running 24x7.

I have to buy an external hard drive for it. Any recommendations? Prices are pretty high these days.

Can you use a memory card ? I am thinking download to memory card and then transfer to HDD.

You need a microsd card for primary storage as it doesn't have any.

And as Nishant said... Downloading on the card itself is a bad idea coz they would wear out faster killing the OS in the process. I am using a pen drive right now waiting for a good price on external HDD. Pen drives are going to die fast too with torrenting.

Isnt it better to risk card or pen drive over HDD. I think torrenting is bad for HDD as well. I have 2 HDDs i have been using one as storage location for torrents. The other has one has all important data.

From a price point of view and considering HDD has a lot of data isn't it better to go with flash ?

plus you cannot download larger torrents on pen drives. i currently have a 32GB one. 128GB ones are going to cost a bit much. the only advantage is portability. sure they are disposable but they are not a good option for long term torrenting. i mean there is no harm. but i tend to have one big torrent in queue that runs for weeks even months during the times when i have nothing current to download. that does not work out on well on a pen drive. so if your requirements are fulfilled by a pen drive, it should be fine. using the sd card is a bad idea because if it goes bad, you have to deal with the whole install/configure thing again. you can of course create an image and use that to get a new card ready faster so that's fine too.
