Lenovo intros ThinkPad HDD

Lenovo on Thursday announced the upcoming availability of two versions of its new ThinkPad USB Portable Secure external hard drive. The portable drives are sized at about three by five inches and are less than one inch thick. Available in 160GB and 320GB capacities, they use a numeric keypad to lock out unauthorized users from accessing their contents.

The information is protected with 128-bit advanced encryption in real time, eliminating the lag time associated with typical encrypted drives. The new drives include full-disk encryption (FDE) for up to ten users and one administrator, making it useful as a business tool. The drives are powered by the USB 2.0 cable that is also used to transfer data and therefore do not require a power cord.

The Lenovo drives will be displayed at the 2009 International CES at the beginning of January in Las Vegas, NV. Lenovo's ThinkPad USB Portable Secure Hard Drive will reach stores mid-November, with the 160GB version priced at $179 and the 320GB costing $219.
