At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, LaCie (www.lacie.com) announced a new line of LaCie Porsche Design Drives. Housed in all-aluminum enclosures that reflect the signature Porsche Design style, the new Mobile and Desktop Drives feature USB-C connectivity (as found on the 12-inch MacBook) with the highest capacities on the market in a compact form factor.
By harnessing the power of USB 3.1, the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive will charge a compatible laptop’s battery when the drive’s power supply is connected to the wall outlet. Via a single USB-C cable, users can power their notebook and access their drive at the same time.
Both the Mobile and Desktop Drives feature all-aluminum enclosures that are scratch resistant and dissipate heat. The LaCie Porsche Design Mobile Drive will be available in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities starting at $109.95; the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive comes in 4TB, 5TB and 8TB capacities starting at $209.95. The drives will be available in March.
