Ok, so im going to get a mac mini next week. And im only getting 80gb. I was wondering if you guys know much about this one, the one I have : http://store.apple.com/Apple/WebObj...e/shop_mac/mac_accessories/storage&nplm=TL883 Mines only 250 gb but thats beside the point. What im wondering is. Im a huge music freak, so I'll have all my music backed up on this from my PC for when I switch. Now i would like to save the harddrive built into the mac for homework and stuff. So the ext would be my media drive. Does anyone know if its possible to leave this drive turned on along side my mini so its always ready for use? I have my PC and probley will have my mini on around 10 hours a day, around 10-12 hours. Or am I better getting one of them stacks thats always connected? Thanks, Joe.
