I have recently upgraded my stock 60Gb HD to a 120Gb model, and now have a spare 60Gb SATA 2.5" drive. The standard recommendation seems to be to get an external enclosure for it and use it as extra storage on my MacBook, but I can't seem to find a decent enclosure anywhere in the UK.

Does anyone have any recommendations on a mac-friendly (preferrably firewire) SATA enclosure? If there was one like Thecus Yes Nano, which allows the drive to act as a host for digital cameras etc that would be even better. Does such a thing exist? Does anyone have a link for a UK stockist?

Thanks in advance
Brian

The only 2.5" SATA caddy I have found is this USB2 IcyBox for 13.90:
