What make and model is your terabyte external hard drive? Did you research prices and get one at a reasonable price? I thought I would never fill up my 500 gb external hard drive and here I am already using up 98% of it. Images certainly take up a lot of space- especially if you have them in high resolution.
Like you, I own a Mac but use the Powerbook with Windows on the side. I only use the Windows portion when I absolutely have to.

I own an 24 inch iMac, which is great for working on photos and art images
because of the size of the screen. If you are trying to manage large photo
files, an iMac will certainly do the job. Get one with as much memory and
processing power as financially possible. The new iMac comes with a 27 inch
screen. However, I store my photo files on a 1 terabyte external hard drive for
security. In addition, I also run Windows on one side of this computer to
accommodate Windows only programs that I own.
