    Does anyone know where/if i can get a 3.5" hard drive enclosure with firewire 800? I'm wanting it for backup for my macbook pro with time machine but i'm struggling to find one on the internet.

    I like OWC in the states. http://www.macsales.com/

    But is it me or are Firewire enclosures becoming less available ? I am kind of scared...

    Ready to use external hard drives are sometimes might be cheaper yes. But you cannot check what kind of drive you have etc etc.
