    External HDD for imac?
    What is the best/easiest externall hdd for an imac? This isn't for me but for a friend. I don't care whether its a portable or whether its a full size hdd.

    Probably looking for 1tb and perhaps something larger.

    My friend had the Lacie but it broke down.

    Thank u

    Specs:
    iMac 27" 2.66GHz i5, 1TB HDD, 12GB RAM, OS X 10.7.3, iPod Classic 160GB,iPad 1 64GB Wi-fi, iPhone 4S
    I use two Western Digital MyBook Essential 1TB drives with my iMac. They work just dandy.

    Heyhey thanks for a very quick reply. Is there a specific model? Is the model just as you posted?

    Thanks!

    Easy to set up with the Mac? Its not for me so looking for something relatively easy for my friend to setup.
