Separate names with a comma.

Any suggestions? There are so many to choose from.
Come on guys. Any real thin/small light weight external hard drives for macs?
try the LaCie Porsche Design. They call it a "Mobile Hard Drive"
an iPod classic maybe ?
a little expensive but you get some extra value.
Frankly, I think the reason why you haven't had much response to your question is that there ARE so many to choose from - and so little to choose between them.
Personally I just bought an external housing from ebay and dropped a spare seagate 80gb I already had into it. It's been 100% reliable and I use it every working day.
Personally, I'd suggest going with whatever you can get the best deal on - any major manufacture is going to supply you with a perfectly adequate drive.
THanks to all that replied.
what about the smallest, lightest weight external hd? it doesn't have to be over 80GB (it's only for my iTunes which at this point is taking up all the space on my comp). I want to be able to carry the drive around every where the com is so the smaller the better.
Also, is there a way I could upgrade the storage capacity of the internal HD?
I've had good experiences with the SmartDrive FireLite (firewire 400) and the Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini (USB 2). Both are bus-powered, so you don't need an AC adapter. You can buy the 120 GB Maxtor at Staples these days for about $99. YMMV.
