JBOD/RAID/eSATA what now?

Have I enticed you nerds yet? I’m trying to find an enclosure to fit 4 1tb Serial ATA hard drives (and this where any of my knowledge ends). It’s just going to sit on my desk and connect to a laptop occasionally for backup and storage of old projects to not overload my measly 250gb laptop. I have done single HDD enclosures before and might even end up down that route with 4 single enclosures but it seems like it would be a nice storage solution to spend money on one of these multi bay enclosures. I have no idea the benefits here and I’m not doing video work, just graphic design so I don’t necessarily need an absolute ton of storage. Cossie for Help?
