    Any Recomendations for a Firewire External Enclosure???
    I need a Firewire or Firewire+USB2 External Enclosure for the Stock 80gb Hard Drive I am swapping out of my MacBook (going to 250gb)... Any recommendations?? From what I have been able to find, they all seem fairly expensive... then the eBay ones seem a bit too cheap.

    Any help?

    Thanks in advance.


    EDIT: Please forgive the misspelling in the title

    Hey sorry i dont know what your looking for but out of curiosity how are you upgrading to 250GB?

    I have a 160GB 1GB RAM macbook and have just bought 2GB RAM for it, isit also possible for me to have a reliable 250GB HD aswell?

    Sure! Just by a larger drive, and install it.

    If it's helpful... I paid $149 Shipped/no tax on eBay for a Brand New/Sealed 250gb WD Scorpio HD.

    Been lookin for almost an hour and havn't found a 2.5" SATA enclosure with FW for less than $70.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
