The company has today announced a new line of portable and desktop USB 3.0 storage solutions, and considering that USB 3.0 is now a reality on some of Apple's newer machines, it's a match made in designer heaven.

There's also the G-DRIVE mobile and G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.0, with the former offering USB 3.0 + FireWire 800 + FireWire 400 interfaces; the USB 3.0 edition ships with just that interface. Both drives are offered 1TB, 750GB and 500GB capacities, and are USB bus-powered. The 1TB G-DRIVE mobile will have an MSRP of $189.99. The 1TB G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.0 will have an MSRP of $159.99.
