    Im sorry this might be the wrong place to ask about E-sata ports, not sure if they are on Macs or not but this is my favourite source of tech knowledge.

    My laptop has an E-sata port on it, and I'm thinking about getting a 1TB External E-sata harddrive for the higher transfer speeds.

    Can E-sata power a 1TB drive? Does it put out more power than USB 2.0?

    Ive tried Googling it but to no avail.


    Thanks in advance,
