Hi all, I am looking at buying a portable hard drive to back up my MBP 15" Arrandale i7 which I purchased a year ago in Ireland. I am not sure which one to go for but I know it would have to be at least 1tb as I have a 500gb hard drive in the MBP. A friend of mine has recommended an Iomega, but I am not sure. The other thing is should I be looking at usb3.0, usb2.0 or firewire. I can not get thundebolt as it is not available on this model. With regard to SSD or HDD I would obviously prefer SSD but I know SSD is pretty expensive and I have seen HDD for 120 euro (about $150). Also what is the deal with iCloud would this be a more suitable way of backing up my computer? I have thought about Time Capsule but I am not sold on the idea, plus because we live in a small house with two children it needs to be portable friendly. Any advice on the best 1tb portable hard drives out there would be great. Thanks Again.
