WD's US$119.99 My Passport Edge for Mac is now officially my favorite external, portable hard drive. It's got everything: good looks, speed and a reasonable price.
The My Passport Edge features 500GB of storage and a USB 3.0 interface, all packed into an ultra-slim, all-metal design (Ultra-slim is a word that's used way too often but in this case, it's appropriate.).
The design looks great with any Mac, but the My Passport Edge simply begs to be used with a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. In fact, as it's bus powered and so slim, this is a must-have accessory for a MacBook Air owner. Previously, I would never have considered buying an 11-inch MB Air with only 64GB of storage. Now I would -- by using the My Passport Edge as home to my iTunes library, movies, etc.
The WD drive is also compatible with Apple's Time Machine for backing up your files. My Passport Edge for Mac portable hard drive comes with a three-year limited warranty and is available on the WD store (www.wdstore.com) and at select retailers and distributors.
Mac ready out of the box -- just plug it in and you're ready to go -- it's the perfect companion for on-the-go Mac users -- or for laptop owners who need more storage than what Apple builds in.
