LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Drives

After I bought my MacBook Air last summer, I decided I would never again buy a peripheral that didn’t support Thunderbolt. Many of us have been waiting for Thunderbolt hard drives and docks to become mainstream and affordable. And the LaCie Little Big Disk is the first consumer-level external hard drive to (mostly) reach that goal.

LaCie’s Little Big Disk is little (only 3.3 inches tall and 1.6 inches wide), but thanks to Thunderbolt it packs a big punch. The drive will read and write as fast, if not faster, than an internal drive would. And it has dual Thunderbolt ports for easy daisy chaining to another drive or monitor.

The drives comes in three flavors: 1TB, 7,200 RMP; 2TB 5,400 RPM; 240GB SSD.
