The 1TB MiniMax Desktop Hard Drive from Iomega is an external desktop drive featuring a pair of FireWire-800 ports, a USB 2.0 port, and a 3-port USB 2.0 hub! FireWire-400 is supported via an included adapter cable.
The drive features a design that is designed to match the look and feel of the original Mac mini. It can be stacked with that computer, and can also rest atop the redesigned Mac mini and Airport Extreme Base Station. It ships formatted as an HFS+ volume for use with OS X. Windows users with Mac envy can certainly use it with their systems, but they'll have to reformat it as a FAT32 or NTFS volume to do so.
Iomega provides a license for their comprehensive protection suite with the drive -- you'll have to download the actual software package from their web site. The protection suite includes Iomega QuikProtect and Trend Micro Smart Surfing for Mac. It also includes Roxio backup software and MozyHome Online backup for Mac and Windows.
