    Anyone have recommendations for an ultraportable external drive such as Seagates GoFlex or WD MyBook? Looking for at least 1TB.

    I have to advise against USB3 right now. It is not available from Apple on any Mac at present. There are third-party cards / bespoke drivers available - but I tried this a few months back with a LaCie drive and found it rather unreliable.

    You are probably best off with something using FW800...

    While not 1TB the G Drive Slim is super portable, slim and lite. It comes in 500GB.
