Aegis Mini 240GB ships
Apricorn has launched a 240GB addition to its Aegis Mini line of storage products. The 1.8-inch, 3.7-oz external drive is available with USB 2.0 and FireWire connections and is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. The 240GB drive is 50-percent larger than the previous 160GB model, which is also still available. The drive features shock-resistant mounting and an integrated FireWire or USB 2.0 cable.
The drive supports both Mac OS X and Windows platforms, and the package includes an extension cable, a neoprene travel pouch and a data-protection software suite. The 240GB, USB 2.0 model can be purchased for $270, while the FireWire variant sells for $280. A $25 mail-in rebate is active for the month of March.
