Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo

Taking a page out of 80's marketing, Maxtor just announced their new OneTouch III Turbo edition (don't tell us extreme finally got played!). Er, vroom vroom. This Mac and PC compatible external storage solution actually sounds promising offering up to 1TB of "easy-to-understand" RAID 0/1 storage using two 3.5-inch 7200RPM ATA drives, FireWire 800/400 and USB 2.0 interfaces, and of course their OneTouch backup. It also includes new tools to sync data between two or more computers and a System Rollback feature to revert PCs back to a healthier state. No, it is not network accessible but it is available this December at $550 for 600GB or $900 for 1TB.
