    My iMac G5 logic board has died. I am going to get a new iMac 27" core i5 when they become available and want to take my internal hard drive from my G5 and convert it to an external for use as a secondary back up device. I found the ultra ULTA40273 model at tigerdirect.com. Is this a good enclosure? Any suggestions on enclosures?

    I also want to use this drive as a bootable back up if needed, any thoughts on how to do this?

    Thanks.

    Any particular reason you're looking at that enclosure? The eSATA interface? Cases can be had for about half that on Newegg if you're just going to use USB to attach.

    No reason for this one, except i came across it and it seemed like a good one. I will check newegg out for options.

    Thanks.
