NewerTech has unveiled the miniStack USB, a new companion hard drive for the Mac mini. According to the company, "The miniStack USB adds everything you need. More hard drive space, with capacity for one 3.5" drive (up to 500GB!), and 3 more USB 2.0 ports. Yes, that's right - you don't need any extra drive cases or hubs for your accessories anymore!"
Each miniStack USB features a smart power switch so the drive turns on with your mini; a thermal probe that automatically regulates and varies fan speed according to the temperature; Prolific 2507 USB 2.0 chipset; and integrated 3-Port USB 2.0 powered hub. The dimensions of the miniStack USB are 6.5 inches x 6.5 inches x 1.5 inches.
Although designed to maximize the Apple Mac mini, the miniStack USB works with any Apple or PC computer with an available USB port including any iMac, mini PC, desktop PC, or portable MacBook Pro, iBook, or PowerBook. The NewerTech miniStack USB retails for less than $110 for the 80 GB version and is available in capacities up to 500GB. All models are shipping now.
NewerTech also announced that they have added a 750GB model to their miniStack V2 lineup.
