    I'm looking for an external hard drive for my 15" rMBP. I'm a journalism student, so I will most likely be using it to save lots of documents and a decent amount of pictures, but will also use it to hold DVDs since my computer doesn't have an optical drive.
    I'd like it to be portable, but an extra half-inch of thickness here or there isn't a big deal to me!

    Any recommendations?


    Another thing: I'd like to not pay an arm and a leg (probably under $100), and would prefer Thunderbolt or 3.0.

    I use a Seagate GoFlex portable drive. It's USB 3 and works really well for me.
