    Looking at getting one of those that run off USB only. Had ordered a Toshiba, only to find later that it has issues with Lion and/or Macbook Airs.

    Now undecided between a Seagate GoFlex, and a WD.

    Any advantages of the GoFlex system of interchangeable cables? I see the prices for a USB 3 cable are pretty high. I have no use for USB 3, but might like a Thunderbolt cable if they ever made one to fit their drives. Any idea whether Seagate might come up with one?

    I already use a GoFlex Home network attached HDD, so woud it make more sense to go for the Seagate? The Seagate is slightly larger and heavier than the WD, but not so significant I think.

    These are the drives I am looking at.

    Expensive now, but I think prices might drop in time, so I guess better to go Seagate than WD.

    No Problem. :)

    It is expensive and I'm waiting for prices to drop as well. Maybe probably in a few months? Who knows? :p
