I have ~200GB worth of data on my mac pro I want mirrored to my MBP, but through a complicated sequence of events, I need to get the files off so I can clean that computer first. I'm thinking the most efficient way would be to simply buy an external HDD? I need a 17" MBP, I've been looking through the buyers guide etc, but I've only recently rejoined so I was wondering if anybody could clue me in as to the likeliness of a new release worth holding out on in the near future. I'm moving to Europe (England) in around a 5-6 weeks, so it's imperative that I get this sorted out soon due to oversea shipping/insurance information. Also, is it worth the HDD upgrade, not the SSD, but the 5400->7200RPM upgrade. I need this to basically hold on to everything that I use my 2008 January Mac Pro for, so it needs to be relatively fast. I do the general creative work/some rendering/some programming/ps/little gaming/adium/firefox/mail/ventrilo that kinda thang. Is there anything that you could recommend?
