Well apparently I need one for college since I'm going to be working with a bunch of VMs and moving them back and forth from school and home, so I don't really have much choice but to get one. Professor even said we MUST have one.
So I was looking on NCIX and came across two at the $100 price point. I don't really want to spend a ton of money on this, but if you think I should, do tell.
LaCie seems to have a better bang for my buck but I haven't really heard of them before so I have no idea if they are any good. Both are 5400RPM drives so I don't think there'd be much of a speed difference between them. LaCie seems to have a few neat features like the retractable USB cord but if it has shoddy build quality, then that's just going to break and be annoying.
Of course I'm open to other choices too. Just keep it in the 120GB+ range and $100 or so price point.
EDIT: Hrm actually, I need it for Monday so I guess I have to find a local store with some...
