160GB portable drives

Trans International announced a new 160GB portable external hard drive solution alongside a new internal upgrade. The external solution, miniXpress, uses SATA-to-FireWire connectivity (support for FW400/FW800/USB) for optimal speeds and allows the drive to be swapped without restarting and due to being powered through the FireWire port (no AC adapter needed). The new drive is small enough to "easily fit in your shirt pocket" (5.8 in x 3.1 in x 0.8 in), utilizing a 2.5-inch hard drive. The enclosure features aluminum construction with built-in anti-shock protections. The drive used in the miniXpress is also sold as an internal upgrade for MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and MacMinis as well as any computers that utilize 2.5-inch portable drives. Both internal ($230) and external ($330) models are available now.
