    Any USB or Firewire External Hard Drive will work. A 2.5" drive is usually usb bus powered which means you won't need to plugin an AC adapter (but these drives are generally more expensive). A 3.5" drive is usually cheaper but you need to plug in an AC adapter.

    Personally I think you are being paranoid and I wouldn't worry about getting an external drive at all unless you have an actual need for it. If you are worried about pictures filling up the drive, you don't have anything to worry about, they aren't going to take up that much space. If you want to back up the computer or store larger files then sure get a external drive. Just evaluate what you need it for.
