Maxtor unveiled its new OneTouch III Mini Edition external hard drive today. The small device weighs a mere 7 ounces and is designed for extreme portability.
Connecting to Windows computers via USB 2.0 or slower USB 1.0 ports, the cute little drive comes in 60GB and 100GB capacities ($149.95 and $199.95 respectively).
The OneTouch III Mini Edition sports a rugged design with rubber side panels, so you should be able to toss the OneTouch into bags without fearing damage, just as you would a flash drive.
Guarding your data is Maxtors DriveLock system to encrypt info and Maxtor Synch software to automatically back-up the contents living on your main storage drive (both preloaded on the Mini).
