Well it depends on what you are doing. Is the extrenal file packed? Are you gzipping things?
The external file will contain the same information only real difference is you need to make another http request to get that information. The external file will get cached so it will be faster on multiple hits. That is where he benefit is.

Sound like a good candidate for external JS file that is gzipped? This would be dom manipulation and jqGrid creation. Basically I will have a couple of divs that I'll ID and then do my changes to them.
I think I've talked myself into doing most of it external.
