LaCie Rugged "all-terrain" portable drive

If you frequently travel with a hard drive -- or just find yourself prone to knocking the thing off your desk -- you may want to take a look at the LaCie Rugged, which the drivemaker is billing as an "all-terrain" drive. According to the company, the 120GB bus-powered USB drive features a "unique scratch-protected aluminum shell and shock-resistant rubber bumper." It's available now for preorder at $329.99; an 80GB version is $169.99. While we doubt this drive can withstand extreme falls, it should come in handy if you find yourself in need of an on-the-go solution that's a little heftier than a thumb drive.
