need assistance best portable USB replacement drive

heather albright

Hello, I want a drive to replace the four drives I have and I want to be sure this drive is portable for my laptop!  It said desktop!  But it is external according to the description!  Does it make a difference weather or not it said desktop verses laptop! I could not find out if it was aluminum or plastic casing!  I like to have all my drives shock resistant as I travel a lot and do not want my drives to go bad from my trips in my bag!
