    I think you can, if you hold down the OPtiON key (alt) while booting, then a thing comes up with 2 drives.

    You can't boot into Windows (ie use Boot Camp) with an external drive without going through a lengthy and complicated process. You can boot into OS X on an external drive no problems.
