    These are my requirements

    Bus Powered (FW/USB powered externals work fine with Macbook?)
    FW400 5200rpm (or 7200 if they exist)
    Reliable!

    Any suggestions? I was looking at a LaCie Rugged, but not so sure how reliable LaCie drives are... Any ideas?

    You could really go with any brand. If you like the 7200 drives you can get a 7200 2.5inch sata drive with an external usb enclosure and just use that. Thats what I have for my eeePC when I travel. All my stuff stays on the drive if I want it and I use the eee for internet and email.

    I just bought a LaCie Rugged 250GB FW800/FW400/USB2. I would not recommend them.
