    Anybody have a OWC Mercury on the go pro external hard drive. I am looking at the 320GB 7200RPM 16MB for $145. I like the size of it and am looking for one for my Macbook Pro. I know there are some cheaper external hard drives out there. What you think?

    Very small and don't require a wall wart.
    $119.00 from Staples when on sale which is almost all the time so ignore the price on the website and check the weekly specials.
    Doesn't come with much of any backup type software but then I don't want any. Works with Linux and Mac.
