If you’ve wanted USB 2.0 connectivity for your PowerBook,
says it’s bringing it to you via its new USB2connect for Notebooks, a new two-port USB 2.0 CardBus adapter.
Adaptec’s USB2connect for Notebooks kit includes a two-port USB 2.0 CardBus adapter for Mac and PC notebooks, providing laptops with plug-and-play connectivity for USB 2.0 devices such as hard drives, CD-RWs and scanners, according to Jeff Loebbaka, vice president and general manager of Adaptec’s Desktop Solutions Group. It’s fully backward compatible with USB 1.1 devices and has full USB 2.0 high-speed certification from the USB-IF.
Products that pass this program’s tests are deemed USB 2.0 compliant and are added to the USB-IF’s Integrators List, Loebbaka said. Adaptec’s USB2connect for Notebooks has a manufacturers suggested retail price of US$99 and will be available at the end of October.
