    You should get something with firewire. Silverstone enclosure are good but a bit pricey...

    here's my suggestion..

    unless you're planning on transferring large files or a big batch of files (100gb and up) i'd say save on the enclosure and get one with USB 2.0 you won't be dissappointed.

    now if your plan is to constantly be transferring files of gargantuan proportions then firewire or esata would be your best bet, however macbooks don't have esata ports yet so fire wire it is :p
