    Recommend this External Drive or a DIY Solution?

    i cary a 500 gig laCie big disk 2 with me everywhere my little iBook goes. i picked the packaged option over a home made after bad experiences with the mobility of my past home made external hard drives. the lacies are better suited for mobile use and just seem a safer option. either way i...
