yeah the Seagate is FW800 I have a brand new macbook pro 17″ too, and like jerron said, size has never been an issue for me. The drive is extremely reliable weighs less than a pound, and i was able to find a 72000 so that’s good.
the also make express cards for SD cards and Compact flash that are faster than a USB reader, you might look into that because it is easier and quicker than using one of those cheaper things you get from ebay or wal-mart. the MacBook’s downfall is not having an internal card reader, even the $150 netbooks have that. Oh well, small price to pay.
