You can use any external hard drive with your Mac…. TIP: YOU CAN USE ANY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE WITH A MAC AND DON’T NEED A “MAC COMPATIBLE” DRIVE. Amazon has a few cheaper drives if you look around. Be sure to buy the biggest drive you can afford as at some point you will need/want it. Be sure to check your price of the different sizes some are so close as to justify the up charge in price. At the time of writing the 1TBb drive was only $5 more than the 500GB drive so that is a no brainer.

A great portable drive for new Macs! In ten years, I’ve owned at least five external hard drives from Western Digital and have never had a problem with any of them. They’re reliable, well-made, and priced right. I’ve never had one die on me and the only reason I’ve owned so many is that they eventually can’t hold enough of my media! To this day, I still use the first 60 GB drive I bought for twice this price!

Essential for the Retina Macbook Pro. I’ve had the drive a few weeks and use it almost daily. I purchased a new Macbook Pro Retina and thought I could live with the 256 SSD drive in it. Turns out I was dead wrong. Even with streamlining my apps, not using it to store music and movies I still filled up the drive very quickly. I use this drive for everything, Dropbox,G-drive, movies, music etc. So far works great and the USB 3.0 is fast. Highly recommended. I do have a couple of notes:
