Which external hard drive for Mac Air?

I'm looking for a small (Lacie-kind of small) external USB 2.0 drive for my Mac Air. It has to be very small and portable. I'd like to use it for my Itunes collection. Anyone have any recommendations?

As I noted in the thread above, I got the G Drive Slim a few days ago and it is awesome. Highly recommended.

I have a

500 GB and a 1 TB external WD drive, they work just fine, even partitioned the 1TB and put a snow leopard boot disc on it. I also recommend getting a mini usb hub, that way you can hook up all your peripherals on one side, rather than either side of the MBA and taking up a lot of work space.

Wow, the same question, in the same forum, on the same page you posted. Welcome aboard Buckeye, what did you study at Ohio State.... a special flower.
