New portable storage options from Western Digital are breaking cover once again. This time around, the outfit has announced the My Passport Edge and My Passport Edge for Mac.
These external hard drives tout USB 3.0 connectivity and 500GB capacities for packing those work files or carrying that Springsteen collection with you at all times. As the name of the Apple-labeled option suggests, it’s well suited for your MacBook and works alongside Time Machine right out of the box — all from the comforts of an aluminum shell. The premium exterior and Mac-friendly tech will cost you a bit more, though, as this version is priced at $119 while the regular offering will set you back $109. If you’re looking to save a few bones and don’t mind a plastic housing, you can take solace in the fact that the PC unit features an automatic backup function thanks to WD’s SmartWare. The pair is available now, but if you’re looking for a bit more info, consult the full PR below.
