Maxtor OneTouch III Mini
Seagate today announced that its Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition is now compatible with Mac OS X. The USB 2.0-based sleek storage and backup solution can quickly and easily transport and backup/synchronize their video files, photos, music tracks and any other digital content. The Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition is a mobile storage solution that ships with a complete set of software to protect digital content, including automated backup, data protection and file synchronization. Using the automated backup software, Mac users can now ensure that all their files are automatically backed up on a set schedule or with the touch of a button.
In addition synchronization features allow users sync home and office Macs. The storage device also features Maxtor DriveLock, embedded firmware that further restricts data access if the drive is ever lost or stolen--even if the internal hard drive is removed and attached to another computer.
The Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition features an attractive metallic design, and comes equipped with black rubber side panels that provide non-skid "feet" and added vibration protection. The compact device weights less than eight ounces.
At this year's Macworld attendees, Seagate will be raffling off a limited supply of the specially-designed mobile storage solutions coated with a San Francisco-themed GelaSkin, a premium- grade vinyl coating that lets owners customize their portable storage with graphics and protect the surface from scratches.
The Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition is available now at major retailers, distributors and online stores for $130 (80GB), $170 (120GB) and $230 (160GB).
