MiniMax for Mac mini
Iomega today launched a new companion drive for Apple's Mac Mini: the new is available in 160GB and 250GB capacities and mirrors the look of the Mac Mini. The stackable Iomega MiniMax Drive comes with integrated dual 3-port hubs for both USB 2.0 and FireWire peripherals, offering increased data capacity as well as improved connectivity. The MiniMax Drive is 6.5" square and 2" tall. A smart power switch allows the drive to power up and down in concert with the Mac Mini, and a specially designed active/passive cooling system keeps the desktop virtually noiseless, according to the company. Dantz Retrospect backup software is included for backups and data recovery for Mac users. The new Iomega MiniMax USB 2.0/FireWire Desktop Hard Drive is now shipping for $200 (160GB) and $250 (250GB).
