SATA adapter for MacBook
FirmTek today unveiled the SeriTek/2SM2-E, a Serial ATA adapter for Apple's MacBook Pro (MBP), which is the world's first device of its kind according to the company. The SeriTek/2SM2-E extends SATA's performance beyond the desktop, offering transfer rates up to 3Gbits/second per port via the MacBook Pro's ExpressCard slot. The adapter offers hot-swap compatibility to ease the process of moving entire drives and arrays from the MacBook Pro to any FirmTek-equipped desktop system. The SeriTek/2SM2-E ExpressCard adapter is slated for shipment in early Q3 of this year, with an estimated price of $120.
