Western Digital MyBok VelociRaptor Duo

Alongside the new My Passport for Mac, Western Digital also released its MyBook VelociRaptor Duo today, a monster setup that offers two 1TB 10,000 RPM hard drives and dual Thunderbolt ports so you can daisy-chain multiples together if you're rich, or connect other Thunderbolt-compatible devices. That's 2TB of storage that can be configured in a RAID 0 or RAID 1 configuration with speeds of up to 400 MBps. That's fast. Time Machine compatibility is built-in right out of the box, and a Thunderbolt cable is thrown in as well. Ready to make the purchase? Expect to drop $899.99 on these bad boys.

Western Digital My Passport vs MyBook

This is a good look at how far companies like Western Digital have come in the storage game. The small, black device is a new 2TB My Passport portable hard drive. The larger silver device behind it is a 1TB MyBook that's probably about 4-years old. Yep, the new My Passport is probably 90% smaller than the older MyBook, and holds twice as much data.
