    I'm looking to buy an external SSD to carry a bootable OS X and creative applications for professional use on different computers.

    However I've come across to 2 portable external SSD options:

    INTEGRAL USB 3.0 PORTABLE SSD EXTERNAL - http://www.integralmemory.com/product/usb-30-portable-ssd-external

    OR

    LACIE RUGGED USB 3.0 & TB - http://www.lacie.com/uk/products/product.htm?id=10599

    LaCie has Thunderbolt & USB3

    Integral has USB3 only but almost twice the storage and considerably smaller.

    Can anyone advise which of the two might be better in terms of what I intend to use it for?

    Thanks

    Pegasus J2 - is pretty small (uses two mSATA SSDs), four times as fast as the Integral and connects via Thunderbolt. You could expand it up to 1920GB using Crucial M500 mSATA SSDs.

    Sounds great but no good - it has thunderbolt only connectivity. If I wanted to work on the current Mac Pros I'm stumped.
