Iomega eGo Portable Mac Edition is a portable hard drive built to be small, light, and connect at high speeds with FireWire ports commonly found on a Mac. It has a FireWire 800 and FireWire 400 port for fast file transfers to and from the drive, and a USB 2.0 port is also built in that will work with any compatible device. The design is 0.625 inches thin and 3.5 inches wide, making it easy to keep in a pocket or slip into a small pouch on a backpack. The Drop Guard feature also prevents damage to the data contained on the device when suffering an impact equivalent to being dropped from a height of 51 inches. Included with this drive is the Secure-Trend Smart Surfing for Mac software that protects the web browsing experience. Unlike other portable drives from Iomega, the color of the drive indicates which storage capacity is built in.
