    Did anybody upgrade their stock HD in their MacBook and put the original in an enclosure to use as an external? What enclosure is best at a good price. Do USB enclosures need a power supply?

    Also, where did you find a good price on an upgraded drive. Thanks

    I bought this enclosure:

    Expensive, but very high quality, runs cool, supports USB 2.0, Firewire 400 and 800 (and they ship all three cables you need). It feels incredibly solid, and the entire bottom is a big giant heatsink which keeps it cool.


    The FW800 support is probably more interesting for C2D MBP owners.
