Hello everyone, I am planning on getting a external HD drive and I was had a Q or 2, firstly, I am considering either the LaCie one (you know its aluminum looking and they used to sell it on apple.ca), and this one http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...20&catid=20238

Now my question is which one do you think is better, not considering size since which ever one I got it would be 500gb?

and more importantly, is it possible to link it to both a PC and a Mac or will I have to partition the HD? I dont want to do that so if either of the 2 i mentioned doesnt require it that would be great. I was hoping it worked like a usb but i noticed there are some external HD's that require windows leading me to believe that a partition may be required, thanks for the help
