240GB Solid-State Drive For Macs

In the past year, solid-state flash memory drive prices have plummeted - even in high-capacity drives pushing 512MB, 1 Terabyte, and now 2TB drives are getting ridiculously cheap. 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.

Combo Mac Drive Enclosure With USB 3.0 And FireWire

I recently came across one of the emerging, new FireWire + USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure options. This combo interface 2.5" laptop drive case is ideal for do-it-yourselfers. The tide is turning AWAY from USB 2.0 towards USB 3.0 and it's happening faster than you might think. USB 3's backward compatibility with slower USB 2.0 and even 1.1 ports makes embracing the future a no-brainer.

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. With fast 2.5" laptop drives now available in up to 1TB capacities, it can be a spacious OSX TimeMachine backup solution. It can be even better when you choose a 2.5" SATA Hybrid SSD drive mechanism or a top-performing SSD to put inside it.

There is also another version of this enclosure available in a FULL-SIZE 3.5" desktop SuperSpeed drive model featuring USB 3.0, FireWire and eSATA as well.
