Iomega's got a soft spot for Mac users (or pre-formatted HFS+ drives), as its two new external storage options both come ready to rock on OS X. On the desktop side, a whopping 1TB now sits behind the unmistakable cheese-grater grille (up from the previous 640GB and 750GB options) in the latest UltraMax drive. Moreover, the unit comes with FireWire 400/800 and USB 2.0 connectivity, a built-in port hub, and cables for all three connectors. The twin 7200RPM SATA drives support both RAID 0/1 and JBOD, while those looking for backup software will be elated to find EMC's Retrospect Express packaged in. On the portable front, the 5400RPM 120GB Black hard drive needs no AC adapter to get to spinnin', and features both FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 ports while weighing just 5.8-ounces and receiving the same backup application as the big guy. Both drives can be snapped up right now, and while the presumably PowerMac-inspired 1TB UltraMax will run you $499.95, the pocket-friendly Black only demands $189.95.
