i have one and really like it as i can keep alot of pics, movies, programs with me on it. it's really handy to have to fix computers without internet access, transfer files to another computer quickly, and backup. i bring mine to work and have all my stuff, it's pretty cool :smile:

just find a big, fast harddrive and then pop it into an enclosure like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=41911&item=5175078403&rd=1

I would get the usb enclosure and the hard drive seperately instead of the ones that are all in one. If you fill up the hard drive or the hard drive goes bad you can just take the the full hard drive or the defective hard drive out & put another hard drive in the enclosure. Also I don't know how old your laptop is, but you may want to make sure you get a usb enclosure or usb hard drive that is both usb 1.1 & usb 2.0 compatible. (most new ones are) That way you've got both tranfer rates covered in case your laptop doesn't support usb 2.0
