Formating hard drive for windows and Mac

I recently purchased a Mac Air with a LaCie ext. hard drive. I have a windows desktop system. Primary use of Mac air and ext. hard drive is off loading pix in the field. Would want to move to desktop when I get home though may do some ps work in the field as I will have LR and PSCC on my Mac Air. I can format the LaCie for Mac only or Fat 32. Would Fat 32 slow down the hard drive when using it with my Mac air for uploading the photos or any in the field PS work? I can format for Mac only and use a software program that will allow windows to read the hard drive.
