Western digital is warming up to the Mac camp today and releasing two new types of hard drives designed for Mac’s.  The first is the popular My Passport series.  The Mac Passports are encased in a shock-resistant case and come pre-formatted for Mac use in 320GB and 500GB flavors.  Unfortunately, they only support USB, Firewire is no where to be found.  The drives are advertised as being Time Machine compatible right out of the box.  Second is the My Book for Mac.  As of now they only available in 1 TB capacities, however I’m sure 2TB isn’t far behind.  Feature wise they are the same as the Passport except for the obvious fact that they are for desktop use only as they will not run solely on USB as they need a power outlet as well.  Pricing for the drives is as follows:  My Passport’s $130 for the 320GB and $180 for the 500GB.  My Book: $180 for 1TB.  All in all, not bad prices.
