What is better Seagate or Western Digital for the mac Mini to use? Thanks
If you want to see just how fast your Mini can be (I have the same model); you can always go and get yourself a 180GB Intel SSD with SATAIII interface, in addition to a Buffalo external 500GB classical HD built in. You then swap that HD with the SSD and you won't ever go back to anything else. Example - a complete clone of the drive using SuperDuper for ~100GB takes 16 minutes to complete, startup until login screen a mere 15 seconds. Definitely the way to go, but expensive. I think I got the SSD for $160, and paid another $170 for the Buffalo drive. If you can't fork over that much money, go with a FW800 one, never buy outdated USB drives, they are just too slow.
Just my 2 cents worth,
Thanks for your answer. To expensive for me and to professional also for my needs.
