    I want to run Windows on my MBP off a portable HD (preferably one that I can use to boot as well). Are there any that are better than others?

    Thanks in advance =)

    I have an external G-drive Mini FW400 drive. I boot my Mini to it, and it's bus powered which means you wouldn't have to drag a power brick around to use it on the road.

    Kind of slick.

    It's good looking, pretty quiet and very tiny.

    miniXpress from Trans Intl.

    You can buy just the enclosure or with a hard drive installed.

    Before I came here, I was leaning towards the G Drive Mini but it's a bit pricey... but if it's worth it, then it's not a problem.

    The OWC looks interesting too...

    Thanks again =)
