I have the MiniStack V2 enclosure from OWC. I put my own Western Digital 300 GB hard drive in it (cheap at Sam's Club and Costco and Frys, etc. etc.).

The drive is partitioned into pieces that match the hard drive sizes of the Macs I'm backing up (e.g., 80 GB for my iBook, etc.). This way, I never have to worry about a full Mac drive's outsizing the partition I'm backing up.

By using SuperDuper, I wind up with a large external drive with several bootable partitions that can be used in the event of a Mac hard drive crash.
