Unfortunately the cable it comes with is only a foot long so you're limited as to where you can put it. Does anyone know where I can get a longer one it's usb to whatever that hole is below (kinda odd)..

Can you use thunderbolt drives? I have a 4gig setup to use as my backup, its amazingly fast :D.
Just had a look at those and they look the bomb :)

Yea, I have the WD My Passport, using a mac, and it works fucking great! the cord that comes with it is pretty short, but you can find USB extension cables on the cheap at almost ANY up to date electronics retailer.

If you're looking for an external drive to use as storage for samples or projects, look for one with a high RPM and significant cache size. I purchase all my external drives from OWC. The Elite series is amazing in terms of speed and reliability. Cheers.
