If you like your portable hard drives fast — and let’s be honest, who doesn’t? — then you may want to check out the newly minted LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series.
LaCie is now selling the Thunderbolt series at both the Apple Retail Stores, and online at Apple.com. The series comes with either typical SATA drives or SSD drives. The drives come in 1TB, 2TB 5400 RPM options, or a 240 GB SSD alternative. The external enclosure also comes with two ports so you can daisy-chain the devices together.
Prices are strangely absent from the release and website, and the PR links through to the Apple store seem to still be broken, but rest-assured, these drives are real, and you’ll be able to get your hands on them very soon.
We’ll update you on the HDD model pricing when it’s available, although to get the speed benefits you would need to get the SSD model.
Hattip to Marilyn Halpin for sending this bad boy to me in an email!
