Before you ponder a HDD hard-disk backup solution, if your storage needs are modest, you'll find 128GB to 256GB SSD backup drives for Mac delivering blazing fast performance at insanely low prices.

Apple users will appreciate the SuperSpeed HDD enclosure's nicely styled aluminum heat-sink case to compliment your MacBook. It's bundled with USB 3.0 Y-Cable to assure enough power if needed.
