    What is the best external hard drive with 1TB for the new Macbooks?
    I heard a rumor the new Macbooks don't have firewire... is that true?

    The aluminium MacBooks do not ship with FireWire. I'd go with a Seagate or Western Digital drive.

    It's not really a rumor when the computer's been out since october :p

    But yeah, grab a 1TB Seagate USB2.0 drive.

    I've got a 500gb Western Digital Studio drive. Haven't had a problem yet! I'm thinking of upgrading a to a 1TB....you can never have too much space!
