I have a 160 Gb Western Digital that I previosuly used with my pc. When I switched to a Mac a few years ago I reformatted it and have been using it for my Time Machine back-ups. I think I've outgrown it and from everything I read I should have gotten a bigger drive a long time ago. My Mac has a 300 Gb hard drive so I'd like to pick up a 1 Tb external drive which should last me awhile.

I have been looking at some Western Digitals on Amazon and notice they have "For Mac" branded hard drives but they are a few $$ more. Is there really any difference? Or can I save a few bucks and get the non-Mac branded one?

Non-branded: Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1 TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive (Black): Computers & Accessories

Mac branded: Western Digital My Passport for Mac 1 TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive - WDBBXV0010BBK-NESN: Electronics
