I'm thinking about getting a Seagate 120GB USB portable HDD or a 160GB.

I know their small, but is it like carrying a brick in your backpack? And further does the 160 weight substantially more than the 120? I'd go with the 160 if it weighed the same or they are both on the light side, but if the 120 weighs less then I'll go that route...

Thanks!

They are the same weight.

With a 2.5" drive in a reasonably light enclosure (plastic or low profile aluminum) it's about a pound.

Sounds like the 160GB is for me, thanks!
