So in the next few days ill be getting my MBP, 15 inch, 2.4 Ghz, 2 gig of ram (for now), glossy screen, and so on and so on.
I'm a new windows convert, and on my windows computer i have a western digital 250GB external, but that will stick with the windows which will still see some use here and there, also its completely full.
So for my MBP i want something thats 750GB or 1TB that will be on almost all the time....with that in mind here are my questions:
-Do i want firewire or USB 2.0?
-Should i get an external hard drive, or an external enclosure and then put a hard drive in it? What are the advantages/ disadvantages of each.
-And finally what would you guys recommend in my situation, i dont want to spend a ton, but i need somethign thats reliable, has a ton of space, and is reasonably quick.
Also what else should i look for when shopping for them?
Thanks a bunch
