    First of all, i know there are alot of threads on hard drives, sorry but they arent very specific and they are relevant to what I want.

    I am hopefully getting a 13" Macbook Pro (500GB) before christmas and would like to know your opinions on the best portable hard drive to use with it, preferably 320GB and above

    EDIT just been researching, and figured it would be more suitable for me to buy a 500GB WD internal drive and take out my 250GB internal and put in a enclosure,

    anyone know any good enclosures for hard drives, preferably usb powered

    I have the same one mentioned up above except in 320gb. Its small, fast, easy to partition and lots of space.
