    I'm going to be getting a notebook soon, and am planning to get an external harddrive for backup and extra storage space.

    Never having used one of these, can you make any recomendations on which units are good or which brands to avoid?

    Thanks

    I have an Iomega 40GB for my desktop, set to backup my critical files in real-time. It has worked fine. When I had a PC outage, I unplugged it & carried it in to a PC at church & plugged it in - voila, there was all may data !! There are newer, more advanced & smaller models than mine - but I recommend you give a look at whatever Iomega is selling now.
