    From a professional stand-point, it SHOULD work as long as you don't upload a bunch of porn on it

    Don't pay extra

    You can buy any external HD back-up and pay $30 less by selecting one that doesn't say Apple/MAC on it. Then just reformat the drive and voila you're all set. I used a Seagate Free Agent 250 to migrate my files from PC to MAC then when I was done I reformatted and now use it with Time Machine as my external back-up. Thank you to the Best Buy guy that recommended this (wherever you are).

    Yes, it will work. The 320's are now the best bang for the buck. You
    pay a premium for the biggest available.

    Since all HD's will work with Macs, and can be reformatted if being used as boot volumes, I never understood the point of charging more for a "Mac" version... it's the exact same hardware. In fact, Fat32 formatted HD's will work as data drives with Macs, although unless you ever intend to swap it back and forth with a Windows machine, I'd change it to MacOS journaled extended...

    To OP: glad it's working right for you... (the Seagate 500g 7200 drive) :)
