I just read your msg and I'm looking for the samet thing for my Thinkpad A20M...circa 2001...has USB 1.1 so firewire isn't necessary, but I'll trade that for a more compact drive since I use tons of peripherals and my desk is full of power cords and USB related peripherals.
Did you end up buying something you are happy with?
Anyone out there have any good suggestions?
I need your help on figuring out what external hard drive i should get for my toshiba satellite 1400-s151 (more info on toshiba.com/support for this laptop) laptop. what i am looking for is an external hard drive (don't matter if its portable or desktop) which has at least 80 Gb, usb 1.1 feature, don't want a fireware because my laptop doesn't support it or usb 2.0 (althought i might get a usb 2.0 card to use usb 2.0), and small enought that it will fit in a normal brief case (don't want that is same size as a a dvd player or xbox ). therefore dear members, please let me know which one are the best in your opinion in details if thats possible, and your experience with it. Also, can you give me tips on what should i look for in an external hard drive (anything will help :))
thank you very much!!!
