If you’ve already learned about the best external hard drives for Xbox One, check this out. Western Digital has just launched a new hard drive that they’re gearing towards Macbook Pro and Macbook Air owners. How so?
First off the My Passport Studio sports the same durable, anodized aluminum enclosure as Apple’s laptops, which resists scratching and fingerprints. Sexy, but it’s performance and compatibility that really counts. So that’s why they’ve preformatted it for Mac computers and made it Time Machine ready right out of the box.
While Western Digital hasn’t pitched us on the internals (no word on spindle speed) and their durablity, this hard drive does rock dual Firewire 800 ports, which allows you to connect to your computer at blazing fast speeds and daisy chain another compatible hard drive if need be.
And for those of you with a Firewire 800 port, there is USB 2.0. Which is a shame, because if they were really targeting the in crowd (by in crowd we mean Apple owners), they would have outfitted this storage device with a Thunderbolt port. But alas, no such interface exists.
The My Passport Studio is available in 3 capacities (500GB, 700GB and 1TB) and weighs no more than .68lbs. It starts at $129.99.
