SmartDisk FireLite (60GB, FireWire)

FireLite from SmartDisk is a portable external hard drive that offers great looks, huge storage capacities and a trim design that makes it easy to carry and use either at your desk or on the go. One of the first things you'll notice about FireLite is its size. But while FireLite is small in size, it offers a big storehouse for your applications and data. With its terrific styling and versatility, FireLite is the perfect solution to all of your data storage needs. Forget copying documents to CDs to carry them between home and office: store them instead on portable FireLite and take the entire drive with you wherever you work. No more updating the "wrong" version of a document, no more "selecting and copying" new or changed content from one version of a file to another. FireLite safely stores important documents so you can work on them any time, anywhere. Whether you use a laptop, desktop or both, FireLite is the perfect way to add storage capacity to your computer. Its trim size means it doesn't take up much space on your desktop. If you're traveling with a laptop, just slip FireLite into your computer's carrying case. FireLite easily holds the applications and data you need. Its speedy performance rates mean you can work directly with your applications and data on the disk - no need to copy anything first to your internal hard drive. When you need to share huge files with customers, coworkers in other divisions or anyone not on your network, FireLite is the answer. Its small size, fast copy speed, ability to use data directly from the drive and large capacity make it ideal for transporting and sharing giant-sized files with others. Don't have a CD burner built into your system? Have one, but hate the thought of creating dozens of CDs to duplicate data that absolutely must not be lost? Back up your critical files to FireLite instead. FireLite offers great performance in copying large numbers of files from your local hard disk, is easily connected and disconnected through a single cable, and is convenient to use in your office or on the go. If your laptop fails while you're traveling, your data can still travel safely with you on your FireLite drive.
