LaCie announced a new version of its Portable DVD±RW Drive, design by Sam Hecht. Now the LaCie drive features a sleek black finish.

Featuring two versions for easy setup and seamless compatibility, you can choose from the multimedia burning solution for Mac or PC. The Windows version comes with Creator Suite 10, while the combined Mac and Windows version comes with Toast 9 Basic, as well as Creator Suite 10.

Additionally, it is USB bus-powered so only one cable is needed to start burning CDs and DVDs. The 8x drive is less than an inch tall and weighs under a pound - fitting perfectly into a bag, backpack, or briefcase. The LaCie Portable DVD±RW drive is also equipped with LightScribe.

The LaCie Portable DVD±RW will be available in versions for Mac and PC, starting at the suggested retail price of $89.99. A Firewire version of this drive has been available for a while. See it on
