So it will have documents, music, pics, vids, programs, games, and anything else you put on a normal harddrive, everything but my OS.
Yes you can put you music, pics, games, and whatever on an externaly hard drive. I'm seeing another case of people not readign the question because they still havent answered your question, hope this helps.
And the other external hard drive you're probably thinking of is SATA, they make an external plug but its not wide spread, you're better off to stick with USB or Firewire (USB being the most common ports on a computer though)
EDIT: and yes the computer will treat them as on internal hard drive, the only difference is decreased bandwith and its external
