MCE Technologies LLC on Monday announced a 100GB version of its Xcaret Pro expansion back hard drive for Apple’s PowerBook G3. The new 100GB drive joins 40 – 80GB models already available. The new US$279 drive is available in an $279
Xcaret Pro-99 model that fits FireWire and bronze keyboard-equipped PowerBook G3s, as well as
a model that works in “Wall Street”-era PowerBook G3s.
Both versions work without drivers, using Apple’s native hard disk drivers to work, and will function with Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. They require no external power supply and are hot-swappable.
