Newegg.com offers several nice looking ones for less than $100
Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Hard Drives,External Hard Drives,1TB and higher,

Walmart .com has Western Digital for $120

Walmart.com: Western Digital 1TB My Book Mac Edition USB 2.0 External Hard Drive: Computers


They all seem to have similar specs, is this going to come down to which one looks the best ? lol

I have a seagate 250GB now, but I need more room.

I suppose I'll be using USB to hook it up, as I'm using a macbook with only 2 usb's I guess my best bet would be to sell my current 250 to a friend and just run one external hard drive no smaller than 1 TB. Maybe if I wait, the price of these will drop in half again. It was only last year that paid $100ish for my 250.

09' macbook 2.4, 4gb. 32" ilo "monitor" bt keyboard, mouse.

When it comes to computer items...if you wait...the cost of what you want to buy AND the stuff you already own will decrease in cost/value!

Sometimes a lot faster than you would like!
