If your MP3 collection has maxed out your ultrabook’s SSD right out of the box, Western Digital has a pair of new slim external drives designed to complement your laptop’s sleek profile. There’s one for Mac and one for PC.
The drives pack 500GB of storage and a USB 3.0 connection, which means it won’t take all day to transfer large amounts of data. The Mac version features an aluminium housing and Time Machine support for $US119. And even though PC users will have to settle for a pattern-adorned plastic housing and Western Digital’s own backup software, they also pay a bit less at $US109. Australian pricing and availability should be forthcoming shortly.
