Maxtor has announced a new storage solution for PCs that can be purchased with capacities up to a terabyte.

The company said Wednesday that the new Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition will ship in either a 600GB or 1TB capacity point, at $549.95 and $899.95, respectively, beginning in December.

There is a small catch, however; the OneTouch storage solution is a small array of two drives, which can be striped in either a RAID 0 array or mirrored in a RAID 1 array.

Striping the data across the two disks essentially doubles the capacity, although it leaves both drives vulnerable to lost data should one drive fail.

"As a leader in consumer storage and backup solutions, our job is to help protect our customers digital lives," said Stacey Lund, vice president of marketing, of Maxtors Branded Products Group, in a statement.
