The drives are designed for quiet operation in a variety of colors and capacities, including fire red (160GB), pearl white (250GB), sapphire (320GB), onyx (500GB) and charcoal gray (750GB and 1TB). Pricing begins at $100 for the 160GB model, with dual-interface USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 models set to ship in May.
