    Looking one for my laptop. Gonna buy my first portable external next weekend. 500gb is okay with me. I have the MBP '11 2.3 GHz Core i5

    It's really up to you what you want. I have a couple WD portables and I like them. People like Lacie ... it just depends on what you want. You could even buy a 2.5" drive and enclosure.

    I'd just go on Newegg and read the reviews. Seagate and WD have popular offerings.

    IF you have a 2011 USB 3.0 doesn't help. I have a late 2011 15" pro and picked up the WD studio portable harddrive. It has a firewire connection. I'd recommend a portable with firewire since you don't have USB 3.0.
