Hard drive manufacturer Western Digital is showing off the latest in its series of My Passport portable hard drives, the Mac-ready My Passport Studio.

Western Digital My Passport Studio

Pre-formatted for Mac and compatible with Apple's Time Machine automatic backup technology, the latest drives feature dual interface (USB 2.0 and FireWire 400) support.

The brushed metal look mirrors the appearance of WD's My Studio Edition II backup drives for Macintosh. Other features, including the drive's unique four LED capacity gauge and pocket-sized body, carry over from the original My Passport drives.

Three capacities (160 GB, 250 GB, and 320 GB) are listed on WD's website, with prices ranging from $129.99 to $219.99.
