Hey,
I own a Macbook and it only holds 60GB. I have recently run out of hard drive space and was wondering which is the best external hard drive to get for the price and quality. I was looking for around a 150GB one. Which is the best to get?
Thanks,
Zman

well half your problem is that you're using a mac.

Anything from seagate and western digital will work for you. Just make sure it says "mac compatibile" unlike a windows PC which just works with anything.

here ya go: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

FreeAgent Go software and drive formatting works only with Windows, but drive can be reformatted for Mac using Disk Utility:

* Power PC G3, G4, or G5 processor running OS X 10.3.9 (or higher), or
* Intel Core Duo or Core Solo processor running OS X 10.4.6 (or higher)

These are your mac minimum requirements.

Good luck!
