October 3, 2008 Iomega is looking to provide a partner in style for the MacBook Air with its latest portable hard drive release. The 320GB eGo Helium is a 0.63 inch (16 mm) thin, 7 ounce (200 gram) unit wrapped - naturally - in an anodized aluminum shell that includes drop protection for mishaps up to a height of 51 inches (1.3 meters) on to industrial carpeting.

The eGo Helium gets power via its USB 2.0 connection so you don't have to lug around a power supply and comes formatted with Apple’s HFS+ file system, as well as offering two back-up solutions; Retrospect Express and the MozyHome online backup service.

The unit is compatible with Mac OS X 10.1.5 or above and with Microsoft® Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP, and Windows Vista™, though the latter will need to reformat the drive to NTFS for use with Windows only, or Fat 32 for use with both.

The Iomega® eGo™ Helium Portable Hard Drive is priced at USD$142.49.
