Hitachi eyes Apple owners for skinny HDD

Too slow?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

SuperSpeed USB may be here, but USB 2.0 remains the standard. Drive makers are still releasing USB 2.0 drives - the latest is Hitachi with its G-Drive Slim.

Hitachi G-Drive Slim

The skinny 2.5-incher is being pitched at Mac owners as a compact - 129 x 82 x 10mm, 144g - 320GB backup drive. The Slim is pre-formatted for Mac use and is compatible with Mac OS X's auto-backup system, Time Machine.

Available in the US now for $100 (£62), the Slim should be out in the UK shortly. Either way, it'll be pricey: you can get a brand-name 500GB 2.5in external Mac-format drive for that money, or a no-name 640GB job. ®
