Got a Mac with the new Thunderbolt port? Then Elgato’s Thunderbolt Solid State Drive is the perfect accessory to plug into it. This portable port-powered solid state drive goes at speeds of 270 MB/s. That transfer rate is blazingly fast compared to the slow 35 MB/s that USB 2.0 gives or the 80 MB/s that FireWire 800 provides. There are no moving parts, so it runs totally silent. It comes in either a 120 GB or 240 GB version. Priced at $429.95 and $699.95, respectively, from Elgato.
