Iomega today announced a sleek little external hard drive in a 40GB model* that is small enough for the shirt pocket and weighs just 99 grams. The new Iomega® USB 2.0 Mini Hard Drive is the first Iomega hard drive to receive 100 percent of its power from a standard USB data port, allowing mobile professionals to travel lighter and still have plenty of storage capacity for all their important files. Because the Iomega Mini Hard Drive is based on 1.8-inch hard disk technology, it is smaller and more energy-efficient than most other portable drives. The 4200-rpm drive has a rugged aluminium enclosure and features a USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed USB) interface for plug-and-play simplicity with any compatible Windows or Macintosh computer (see below). The Iomega Mini 40GB Hard Drive is now available at SRP S$ 409.

Iomega today announced a sleek little external hard drive in a
40GB model* that is small enough for the shirt pocket and weighs just 99 grams.
The new Iomega® USB 2.0 Mini Hard Drive is the first Iomega hard drive to
receive 100 percent of its power from a standard USB data port, allowing mobile
professionals to travel lighter and still have plenty of storage capacity for
all their important files.

“The Iomega Mini Hard Drive is host-powered, small, and weighs next to
nothing, so it is a great choice for mobile professionals and students,” said
Chris McPherson, managing director, Asia Pacific, Iomega Pacific. “Using a Mini
Hard Drive is extremely simple: just connect it to your computer’s USB port and
you’re ready to take your files anywhere. Other external hard drives require an
external power source, tethering you to the nearest available AC wall outlet.
The Iomega Mini Hard Drive gives the user more freedom and flexibility. You
won’t find a simpler product on the market.”

including MusicMatch™ Jukebox music management software (PC and Mac) and Adobe®
Photoshop Album™ SE (PC) for digital photos.
