Western Digital today introduced the My Passport Air 1 TB portable hard drive for Mac users, available in an all-aluminum enclosure. The 1 TB drive is designed to enable users to save and transfer digital photos, music and video on the go. The slim design of My Passport Air complements the MacBook and MacBook Air form factors with an all-aluminium exterior to give enhanced protection to the drive and its contents. Out-of-the-box operation with Mac computers and Time Machine, provides additional protection for digital content.
The My Passport Air portable hard drive allows users to password protect access to their drive and hardware encrypts its contents, protecting personal material. In addition the USB 3.0 interface dramatically increases read/write speeds compared to USB 3.0 drives.
"WD's new My Passport Air 1 TB is the ultimate portable storage companion for Mac users," says Scott Steffens, general manager for WD's consumer storage solutions. "Its ultra-slim, high capacity design and advanced content security features make it a must have accessory for even the most discerning Mac aficionado."
The My Passport Air 1 TB portable hard drive has a 3-year limited warranty and is available on the WD store and at select retailers and distributors. The suggested retail price of the My Passport Air is $149.99.
