    The more expensive one has a "free-fall sensor."

    Just get the less expensive one as the MacBook already has a sudden motion sensor built in.

    Try to find a firewire-800 enclosure, you won't regret the speed difference compared to an usb one!

    Correcto.

    And if you dropping a unibody, the HD parking itself is going to be least of your problems ;)

    From some of the other threads I have read around here, the inbuild free fall sensor will clash with the mac one and maybe cause some problems.

    So go for the cheaper =D

    no, i had a 320gb/7200 wd in a mbp 2.4ghz with free fall sensor and osX with motion sensor enabled without any problems ..

    but to dissable motion sensor is very easy.
