How do you store your photos?

Here's the deal:

Currently, I keep all my pictures in Lightroom 5. They're stored on one partition of my external hard drive, smart-previewed to my laptop (due to ailing disk space) and backed up to the other partition on the same hard drive.

That time is a'coming when I think I can justify the purchase of a new computer. As I'm looking at one of the ultra-shiny new MBP's, I was thinking that now might be the time to shift up to Thunderbolt/USB 3 external hard drives too. My current laptop is rather messy after six years of accumulated files (photos are, thankfully, all in my Lightroom catalog). I'm going to need to organise this nicely to begin with though, and I find smart profiles frustrating at best, seeing as I need to be at my hard drive to import photos properly, otherwise I risk only partially backing my files up. So I put it to you, dear forumites,
