NewerTech Intros New MiniStack and MiniStack Max
Wednesday, January 11, 2012 - 1:39 PM EST
Posted by: Staff

NewerTech has officially introduced their new MiniStack and MiniStack Max external hard drive solutions. These aluminum drives are designed to be stacked with the 2010 and 2011 Mac mini, as well match other current Macs. They also offer quad-interfaces of FireWire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and eSATA for connecting up. And cooling is said to be controlled by a MagLev fan, which is the same as being used in the Mac mini, for whisper-quiet operation. The MiniStack Max also features a built-in optical drive, SD card reader, and USB powered hub taking expansion to the next level.

More information and pictures can be seen down below if you are interested. NewerTech still hasn't released pricing information, but both models are scheduled to begin shipping in March.
