    Yes, USB 3.0 is faster than Firewire. Yes, the MBA can power USB-powered drives.

    Sounds good =D. Thanks for the reply GGJ.

    Judging from review, the WD seems good.

    I just bought me one of those you linked. I went for 500gb, to use as backup disk. Nice small size, haven't been able to test the usb 3 speed yet. My mba is still on its way :).

    There are a few other threads with this topic, and plenty of good answers if you look. Personally i use a Seagate go flex that is usb 3. A 1tb drive set me back about $90 from Amazon.
