I'm looking for an external enclosure and drives that need to attach to
a laptop.  I need the fastest possible interface and performance.  


(Laptop hard-drives are way to slow to demo a DB sufficiently.)

Should I be looking at firewire, usb 2.0, or something I don't know about?

Hi norbs101,

At this moment USB 2.0 is the fastest you can get.
Get yourself an external USB container for IDE drives and get yourself a nice 7200rpm drive or faster.

Greetings,

Not that I know of, otherwise you should be thinking about a NAS to attach to the laptop with a network cable. But that takes away all advantages of a laptop as you will have to carry the case of the NAS all the time.
