I'm a musician and Mac newbie. Having just made the switch to Mac (I love it, BTW, don't know what took me so long!), I'm pretty ignorant of the available options. It needs to hold hundreds of GB and it needs to be speedy (suitable for use with Kontakt or other software samplers). Smaller physical size is better, but speed is more important. What are some reasonable choices? USB? Firewire? ExpressCard/34? ....?
