Can the P9233 be powered by USB port to the Macbook? Or does it need an external power cable to the power socket?  Thanks

    This hard drive does need an external power supply to work. However they do make a portable version, the P'9223, which doesn't need an external power supply. Only downside is the maximum size is 1TB.
