I need to upgrade my old G4 power mac as it is too slow for my needs and is genrally getting very tired. I'm worried it might die any day soon. After thinking about it for nearly a year and waiting for all this intel transition I've got heart set on a MBP, I've always used desktop macs but I really want to get a laptop, I'm going puchase this as soon the updates are made (hopefully 2moro!) I need advice on a good portable external hard drive (250GB+) as 100 GB and 120GB internal drives won't be enough. my itunes collection is already 80GB, I have atleast 30GB of other Audio files and another 40GB of photos so even a 160GB internal wouldn't be enough. Basically I think I need a hard drive that that i can store my itunes/photo collection on, thus freeing up enough space to keep all my applications and working audio and photoshop files, without fear of always running out of space. (i've never felt like i had enough hard drive space) Sorry if similar questions have been answered before but i have read lots of info on desktop hard drives but not much stuff on portable drives.... any help would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone had any experience using a laptop with an external hard drive that was always in use? Would I find this really annoying.... please help!
