Western Digital has unveiled the latest addition to its My Passport line of external storage solutions. The new drive is called the Western Digital My Passport Elite. The external hard drive is small and has some new and interesting features to make it more usable including a new grab-and-go dock.

The storage solution uses 256-bit hardware encryption to keep data safe and the drive comes in three colors. The colors include red, blue, and charcoal with storage capacities of 320GB, 500GB, and 640GB. Pricing for the drive is $119 for the 320GB, $159.99 for the 500GB, and $169.99 for the 640GB drive.
