Hi I need a HDD docking station to use on my MacBook 13" Unibody.

The hard drives I need to use with it are PC formatted so will need to use them in in Windows 7 (accessed via BootCamp) but I probably will eventually format them to use in OS X

Anyhoo, I was just wondering if you guys know of a good make or model to go for.

Thanks for your help.

For a cheap solution, I'd recommend one of these:

Newegg.com - VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter

If aesthetics are important, then I'd recommend one of these:

NewerTech Voyager Q- Quad Interface SATA 2.... (FWU2ES2HDK) at OWC

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
