Hi all, I just bought my first Mac and I need some advice and guidance. I installed the new Production Suite and I need additional HD Space especially for Final Cut Pro. I have the standard 160GB drive that comes standard with the system. I was thinking about adding the new Maxtor DiamondMax 10 - SATA 300GB internal drive. Here are the key features and specs: (from the Maxtor website) FEATURES - Second-generation Serial ATA with 1.5Gb/sec interface speed - Native Command Queuing - 16MB cache buffer for 250 and 300GB drive - Fluid dynamic bearing motor for quiet operation - Improved reliability with: - Shock Protection System - Data Protection System High Performance - DiamondMax 10 supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ). NCQ intelligently reorders read and write commands to improve performance. Delivering reliability - DiamondMax 10 drives deliver high reliability and data integrity using the Maxtor-developed Shock Protection System (SPS) and Data Protection System (DPS) - SPS and DPS give the drive enhanced protection against operating and non-operating shock. There are two different things I can buy, a kit and just the drive. I found the drive at Dell Small Business with a 20% discount so the drive comes at only $204 dollars. link to Dell Small Business I think the difference is that the Kit comes with software called MaxBlast but if I understand correctly, that's only for Windows systems. Do I need any special software to format the drive on Mac OS X? Should the drive by itself be all I need or do I need the kit? Any input, advice, and/or recommendations would be appreciated .... new Mac owner here!! Thanks!
