    I'm looking (so far) at getting a 15" rMBP, either with 256 GB SSD or 512 GB SSD. In either case I plan on getting an external HDD as I plan on using this laptop for a while, say 4-5 years if not longer. My choices are:

    WD My Passport Ultra

    G-Tech 1TB G-DRIVE mobile

    I was wondering if anyone could steer me in the direction of one or the other, perhaps from personal experiences. OR, if you guys have any other recommendations I'd love to hear them

    Buy the one that you think has the prettiest case. They're all the same inside.
