What are the best portable storage devices for Mac

On average, Apple desktops and laptops come with anywhere from 250GB to 1TB of disk space, but sometimes that’s not enough. Especially if you plan to partition your hard drive – half for Mac and half for Windows – that the extra space you thought you had at first could dwindle before you have all your software installed. One way to solve this problem is to use an external drive. Not only do they offer a great deal of room at low prices, it’s also a great way to keep important documents safe in case of a hard drive failure. LaCie d2 Quadra
