This Thunderbolt drive enclosure has space for two 2.5-inch disks of your choosing; install a couple of SSDs and you can build a very fast external drive. The disks can be used as independent volumes, or you can combine them into a striped RAID array.
Portability seems to be ever more important to creative pros, with powerful laptops such as the MacBook Pro with Retina display often shedding as much weight as possible.

This week feels like a Back to the Mac kind of week as our deals are super hopping for those of you bound by desks and laps. Never fear, we still have great iOS price cuts, but if you're in the model for upgrading your main machine, this week we're playing your song. Meanwhile, there's this --->
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!

CES is the week's big news so hopefully all the new models mean price cuts coming our way on last year's everything. At least, that's how we roll when we're not early adopting. Meanwhile, as we all marvel at the latest and the greatest, here's some pretty great price cuts that will be sure to be a hit with your wallet.
The Retina MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs are great computers. Whether you need ultra-high resolution or ultra-portability, those machines are stunning workhorses. But there's a tradeoff: Both models come with fixed flash storage. Many MacBook users need to pack along an external drive in order to house all their data. Recent offerings from Western Digital and G-Technology bring signature Mac style to svelte little external drives that are at home on your desk or in your pocket.
Thunderbolt (and lightning) may have been very, very frightening to Freddie Mercury, but Apple fans have been pining away for stuff to use with the Thunderbolt port on their Macs. Western Digital’s My Book VelociRaptor Duo puts the waiting to an end, literally. This ultra-fast desktop RAID offers blistering speed, but it comes at a cost.
