Seagate External Hard Disk: Backup Plus for Mac and PC, Expansion for PC only?

I am using Windows notebook (Sony VAIO).

I want to store my home photos and videos on external harddisk.

I am thinking of Macbook pro if I change my notebook.

I went to buy Seagate external harddisk

The salesperson today, told me that

Seagate Backup Plus can be used for both Mac and PC

Seagate Expansion can only be used for PC.

I was under the impression that...  for all external harddisk that I use

today for Windows, I can plug into tomorrow's Macbook pro.

Is that wrong?

Thanks.
