I wonder if the best solution for a bus-powered portable solution might
be to go out and buy the bigest 2.5 inch laptop drive possible, then get
a firewire enclosure for it that doesn't require external power? This way, you 
can power the drive from the
firewire's bus power. There is probably USB solution for this as well,
although I think firewire may be a bit more robust.
I don't generally like dedicated external hard drives very much.
