G-Tech's Mini Combo: one of four models available

Every HDD in the fanless G-Drive range comes pre-formatted in the Mac’s native file format - HFS Plus - and supports Mac OS X's Time Machine automatic back-up system. You’ll have to reformat the drive if you want to use it with Windows.

The 2.5in Mini Combo G-Drive is available in 160GB, 250GB and 320GB capacity options, with USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 support. Another 2.5in option is the Mini Triple, which ships as either a 250GB or 320GB drive with USB and FireWire 400/800 connection capability.

G-Tech’s two 3.5in HDD options, the Combo and the Q, are both available as 500GB or 1TB capacity drives. But while the Combo supports USB and FireWire 400, the Q also supports FireWire 800 and eSATA connections.

Prices start at around £100 ($170/€125).
