Working from an external HD

I'm on the road using a laptop that is fast running out of HD space. I use WD 1T drives for backup. But I was wondering if these drive are suitable for everyday work.

I use ASP, PSPx5 and Photomatix. My thoughts are to download my Raws from camera onto a new dedicated WD external drive. Using my PP software for work while using the WD for file location. That way I'm retaining the last 100gig of laptop HD for the PP programs to do their thing.

Good idea or is it flawed somewhere?

regards
