Right now I use a old laptop. Would a little portable hard drive with NAS be better like WD sells or not really? Do they support Plex ?

Are you planning on running Plex off the NAS or just using NAS as storage for your Plex server? If the first thing, make sure you get one that can transcode well enough to support your use cases, else you will be sad.

I'm using a Qnap 451+ at home. It runs my Plex Server, hosts my data, is a backup target for my desktop & laptop.

I recently set up a Synology 1517+ with five 4TB Iron Wolfs and it's pretty damn nice.

I think the 4 bay 960+ is a little better if media management/streaming is the plan.

I'm a Synology advocate. I have a couple of the RS815. I use it as a NVR with my Hikvision IP Cameras too.
