Posted ]HERE at £66 from Amazon a couple of weeks back with a fair bit of discussion on it.

I've got a couple of these - great drives but they do run a bit warm.

These always make me laugh - "designed by Porsche". Yeah, it's a silver box, I bet that took a while to design!

You make a fair point, but when you look at the designs by other car manafacturers, well, for example here's the external hard drive as designed by Skoda...

I bought this just before Christmas. Paid a couple of quid more from ebuyer as well, just missed the deal of the day when it was £60. Good drive took a while to format though.

Oi!!!! Leave us proud Skoda drivers alone! I love my Octy and it goes like the proverbial!

Sorry to ask a stupid question, but do these run on laptops? Can i plug this into the USB port on my laptop? Or do you need a computer to use this?

Don't mean to be cheeky but your laptop is a computer. Yes it will work with your laptop, but it'll make it a little less portable as it needs an AC power adaptor.

Where does it say this is the hard drive designed by Porsche? I know the one at Amazon is the Porsche one, in Silver, but the ebuyer one appears to be black, and a completely different case.

The Porshe case is surprisingly small compared to other external hard drives, so I would be tempted to go with the Amazon deal if this is not the Porsche design.

Does it really need an ac adaptor when plugged in a usb port? My 160gb 2.5 inch portable samsung drive doesnt need ac power, just he usb.

Yes, it Needs an A/C adaptor.
Smaller passport sized ones take power from USB. Some have 2 USB connectors to get enough power. But bigger ones as these definitely need A/C.

Since these connect by USB, is it irrelevant if your PC is IDE, while an external drive is SATA? Or vice versa.

All gone

Yes, completely irrelevant - as you are not connecting using either of those methods.
