I guess it would depand on the what "systems" you talking about, but in general the answer would be yes. How large of a HDD are you looking for? If you also looking to save money, get the HDD enclosure and get the "normal" PC HDD and just put the hDD in the enclosure. Normally you would save your self some money that way, and thew HDD would be just as fast/reliable as the "portable hdd".

or

Maine diff is this one has Cache 32MB insted of 16Mb (not a big deal...)

You can also get this one, it has 320GB same price as the 1st link, just as good.

I also would recommend a HDD enclosure:

If you want portability...it's good to have the stuff to make it portable
