Newer Technology is passing along a savings of up to 10 percent on its products. The external storage solutions for Mac mini now cost $90 with no drive, $140 for 80GB, $180 for 160GB, $220 for 250GB, $260 for 320GB, $360 for 400GB and $480 for 500GB. All miniStack models feature high-performance 7200RPM hard disk mechanisms and data buffers of 2 or 8MB. The line utilizes the latest Oxford911+ chipset in a custom FireWire/USB2 bridge for unrivaled performance and reliability. The miniStack provides significantly better hard drive performance versus the stock Mac mini hard drive while at the same time providing additional USB2 and FireWire ports via its integrated USB2 and FireWire Hubs.
