While some people still pick the traditional hard-drives that are suppose to be used inside a desktop computer, there are others that need more portability. In the latter case, the latest portable hard-drive from Imation, named Apollo, might be a good option.
Unlike other external drives that need a powered cord in order to work, the Apollo is powered via USB, and only measures “half an inch thick”, plus “0.35 pounds” on the weight.
Currently there are 2 models available with 160GB and 320GB, but in the upcoming weeks (summer time) there will be a huge 500GB model in the stores. For now, the known price is $150 for the smaller model, and $223 for the middle one.
Outside, the design is claimed to be durable but upscale with a brushed outside and chrome trim.
