Imation offers up thin Apollo USB hard disk

updated 11:40 am EDT, Tue June 10, 2008

Imation Apollo

Imation kicked off the launch of a new storage line today with the Apollo portable drive. The storage designer plans to separate itself from others by producing an especially thin and light USB hard disk that measures half an inch thick and weighs about 0.35 pounds. Outside, the design is claimed to be durable but upscale with a brushed outside and chrome trim. Like most notebook-class external drives, the Apollo takes its power entirely from the USB port and lets travelers cut down on the number of power cords.


Apollo drives work with both Macs and Windows PCs and come with a Total Media Backup software pack that lets users of either computer platform regularly backup or sync content from a host drive. Versions available today ship in capacities ranging from 160GB ($150) to 320GB ($223); a 500GB model comes later in the summer, while a larger Apollo Pro drive for desktops is scheduled to appear before the end of the year.
