Iomega eGo hard drives target Macbook Air users with thin form factor

Sep 18, 2008

The Iomega eGo external hard drive debuted today with a very specific target market in mind: MacBook Air owners. The 2.5-inch portable drive is perfect for backing up your information on the fly.

Encased in anodized aluminum is a 320GB hard drive that provides more than enough space for most people's needs. However, you can combine the drive with an online backup service as well, bringing "cloud computing" to the table.

The hard drive is less than an inch thick and weighs just 7 ounces, making it the perfect companion for your on-the-go computing. The Iomega eGo hard drive costs $149.99 and seems like the perfect option for MacBook Air owners that need a little extra storage room for backup. And really, the price isn't too bad, either.
