Iomega has introduced a new portable hard drive aimed at the owner of the MacBook Air or any other computer user wanting a very thin drive. The external USB drive has 320GB of storage and looks like the Air in design.

The case is only 16mm thick and weighs 7 ounces. The USB connection also powers the drive and it comes pre-formatted for Mac OS X. The drive will work with Windows systems, but will need to be reformatted. The drive will be available in October for $149.99.

"Iomega's eGo portable hard drives have garnered tremendous attention in the beige world of external storage by offering consumers a choice of several different vibrant colors as well as a camouflage print and genuine leather," said Peter Wharton, vice president of marketing, Iomega Corporation. "The eGo Helium extends that strong commitment to delivering style with substance. What makes eGo Helium such an effective piece of industrial design is the way it dresses up a highly functional 320GB hard drive device into a durable and sleek package with plenty of storage capability, making it an easy-to-use 'eye-catcher' that's small enough to go anywhere."
