I'm interested in backing up my 3yr old Dell laptop at work as I sense a need for replacement, and as such am worried about an unforseen accident, such as an unfortunate backover with the car http://www.ehmac.com/ubb/icons/icon9.gif. Any comments on the new USB 2 or Firewire external HDDs? Lacie has a bunch that look good - anyone use these before?

I use a Lacie 20GB external FW HD, and it's been great. Better yet, if the drive size is too small for you, you can pop it open and swap out the drive for something much bigger, like an 80gb Ultra ATA.

I've had a number of LaCie products over the years, and have been very happy with all of them.

Depending on the size of your HD, I would be tempted to stick to Firewire.
