Strange that the Mac edition eGo drive is red but with firewire connections for Mac, yet this version has the aesthetics but not the function to match

The Iomego eGo Helium is a thin, lightweight hard drive designed to match the MacBook Air. It comes formatted for HFS+ making it highly compatible with Macs, and it is small enough to fit into a purse, briefcase, or laptop case. It has the Iomega Drop GuardTM feature which claims to protect it from drops up to 51", a height that is 40% above the industry average. It has 320 GB of space which is equivalent to 1,280,000 photos, 5920 hours of music, or even 480 hours of video. As with most Iomego hard drives, it comes with the EMC Retrospect and MozyHome software to aid the consumer with data protection, backup and data recovery. These software options come as available to download, not with the actual package.
