Iomega eGo HDD in Leather

Iomega today unveiled its newest portable hard disk drive, the 250GB Brown Leather eGo Hi-Speed USB 2.0, aimed at fashion-conscious buyers. The drive combines a 2.5-inch disk that endows it with a 250GB storage capacity and a burnished brown leather body. Carrying the compact drive around is made easier thanks to its USB 2.0-powered connection; only one cable is needed to transfer files to and from computers.

The newest addition to Iomega's eGo range shares the line's DropGuard technology that protects the drive from damage when dropped from up to 51 inches. Data security is ensured with downloadable EMC Retrospect HD software helps Windows PC users organize scheduled or on-demand backups. The eGo leather drive is compatible with Mac OS X 10.1 or higher and with Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, XP, and Vista.

The Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drive is currently available in shops and online for nearly $150.
