That sort of thing should work with any modern OS, I can't comment on the PS3 either though.

The biggest issue with the portable hard drives is that they don't work on some USB ports. Most drives come with a second USB cable or a split USB cable to provide more power to make them work but I can't see any mention of that in the specs on ebuyer, although the manufacturer's website may say.

I got a 160GB laCie mobile disk from dabs in January for £56 which has been great, they don't seem to be doing it anymore though. You might be able to get the western digital portable elements 160GB for around £50 too, PC world had it on display last time I went in. Make sure it's the portable version though, there's a similar desktop version.
