Help me properly accessorize my ThinkPad. To get: bag, external drive, fingerprint reader (?) etc.

I recently purchased a 15.4" ThinkPad SL510 running Windows 7. It's my first laptop so I've never dealt with portability and it's issues. If I could I'd tether it to my wrist, but that seems a tad impractical, so in lieu of that I'll just get everything I need to ensure it and it's contents safety. I'm looking for the most reliable for the least money and the most compatible.
External drive for back-up. The Lenovo website has a few 'recommended' drives for decent price tag (~$150). When I go to other comparison sites there's just too much available, I'm overwhelmed. (And honestly, I don't know enough about it to get really picky).
Back pack carrier. I really like Chrome in theory, but they only have two bags specifically designed for laptops. One I just plain don't like, the other only has one strap which is bad for me. Can I get a non-laptop Chrome bag and use a sleeve? Or am I better getting a specialized padded pack?
Fringerprint reader. I am HORRIBLE with passwords. They're almost all the same, I forget them. Just sucky, sucky security going on. Is it worth it to get a fingerprint reader? Do they really work? Can they be compromised?
What else should I be looking for? Important info: I'm in Canada, going to university.
