I have an iBook whose hard drive just pretty much died... It went through a week or so of the loud grinding type noises during which I backed up everything I had to, and it's finally just stopped booting completely. I have my own reasons for not having the hard drive replaced (mostly I think it's a waste of money, as I plan on buying a new computer sometime next year), but for now I'd like to get an external drive and use it as my primary (well, only) boot drive, effectively turning my laptop into a desktop for the time being. Is this an okay idea? I'm looking at this drive; is it the best one for my purposes? Any advice would be extremely appreciated before I start this whole process. Thanks all!
