    Okay I'm planning on ordering this drive,, to put all my media files on so I can clear up space on my MBP. Is it possible to make iTunes just read from this instead of my HDD on my Mac? Also I can partition a portion of the drive for Time Machine correct?

    Thanks and sorry if these are dumb questions. I'm new to this! :D

    Yes, move your Library to the external and point iTunes to the new Library under Prefs > Advanced > Library Location.

    and you can partition and have time machine use one partition.
