Well if your "just buying a hard drive and a case", i assume you mean SCSI or SATA which is probably the same thing as getting an internal drive.

If you get an actual external hard drive, it'll be USB or Firewire. The disadvantages are that it is a bit slower and doesn't access as quickly, it also needs its own power cords :(. Pro: they are portable obviously, some have media readers installed on them... and well, they are huge chunks of memory you can take with you hehe.
