Yeah, there is that, although I don't have much confidence in how well a USB bus drive off a laptop will perform for high-volume photography, but I'm pretty ignorant. Do you have links to good, reliable devices?
USB is just slow, so if you need some speed then there's no way around it, really. I just recommend getting a not-cheap enclosure and putting in your own hard drives, can't offer anything more specific than that since I only use USB for archiving.
My point was that RAID seems pointless, and bus power isn't an issue for single 2.5" drives, so the OP should just get a single 2.5" and not have to worry at all.

Unless it IS your system. I'm kinda putting my eggs in one basket here. Can't afford two computers, so I'm going portable.
I'm confused. What does this have to do with having two computers?
