By Peter Cohen
Seagate on Wednesday introduced a new line-up of mobile and desktop
FreeAgent for Mac storage devices. The new products include the FreeAgent Go Drive for Mac, Go Pro for Mac Drive, Go Dock+ and Desk Drive for Mac 2TB.
The FreeAgent Go Drive is an external USB 2.0 hard drive, available in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB capacities for $100, $120 and $150 respectively (FireWire models are also available). The Go drive comes with a docking station that it rests in when in use, similar to an iPhone or iPod.
The Go Pro for Mac drive combines a 7200 RPM hard drive mechanism with FireWire 800/400 support, and it comes in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB capacities for $130, $150 and $190, respectively.
The Go Dock+ is an enhanced version of the dock used by Go drives. It sports three USB 2.0 ports on its backplane, so it acts as a USB hub. It also includes a protective case to keep the Go drive safe when being transported. It costs $40.
The Desk Drive for Mac 2TB is a desktop hard disk drive that features a brushed aluminum “arctic silver” finish designed to complement Apple hardware. It includes FireWire 800/400 connectivity and costs $340.
