Choosing portable hard drives- help please!

I've been wanting to buy a portable hard drive and I don't have any idea about the space I should go for but the price shouldn't be more than seven thousand NPR. Which kind of portable hard drive do you suggest?

Also, is it more economical to buy it in Nepal or buy through Harilo?

Mac or PC?  I bought this one and I'm extremely happy with it--  http://harilo.com/deal/107/western-digital-my-passport-se-for-mac-1-tb-usb-2-0-portable-external-hard-drive

It's much cheaper to buy on Harilo than the local market.

This doesn't seem to be Linux-compatible. Otherwise the 750GB capacity looks good to me!

Lol.  No one markets to the Linux segment - that's the price you pay for being a minority.  But I have Ubuntu on my deployment machine and both PC and Mac versions work on it.  With a bit of tweaking of course.  But then again you wouldn't be on Linux if you didn't want to tweak :)

It has an external power source which is a deal breaker for me.  You might feel differently.
