    Guess it's back to piracy then. Oh well.


      ABC, what the crap man? Geroni-NO.

    In terms of that HDD - that is fantastic. My TAFE course wants us to have Firewire 800 connections, so I got one - but in one of our labs, the computers have only got Thunderbolt e_e

      You realize that without being a member, commenting is pretty useless right..

      Firewire vs Thunderbolt seems like a no win scenario.. Either you go all mac, or you use basically obsolete technology (especially for hard drives :|)

      Perhaps suggest they kill themselves and find a learning institution that doesn't encourage idiocy... Lol just kidding, there is none. Get a job you hobo.

      Your TAFE course forces you to use either Firewire or Thunderbolt? One is outdated and obsolete, the other is so relatively new nobody is using it yet. Why would they force those to be your only choices instead of the obvious and ubiquitous USB?
