Western Digital on Thursday introduced its new external portable My Passport Edge hard disk drives with USB 3.0 interface. The new drives feature auto backup and encryption as well as faster performance thanks to modern connection, all in small and stylish design.

The WD My Passport Edge features 500GB of storage and comes equipped with WD SmartWare continuous and automatic backup software to create a copy of users’ computers’ content to ensure personal digital files are backed-up and protected in the event of computer loss or theft. The My Passport Edge for Mac is also compatible with Apple Time Machine for added peace-of-mind and seamless operation out of the box with any Apple Mac computer. Both MyPassport Edge hard drives integrate one of WD's 2.5" 7mm single-platter drives with 5400rpm spindle speed.

“WD's new My Passport Edge portable drives for Mac and PC offer mobile users a safe, compact, attractive way to conveniently work or play anywhere life or business may take them. We know that people who bring personal and business content along with them on their travels are concerned with portability and with maintaining privacy while also protecting their data. We design all My Passport products with a small footprint and with security and protection in mind,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president and general manager of WD's branded products and consumer electronics groups.

My Passport Edge and My Passport Edge for Mac 500 GB portable hard drives come with a 3-year limited warranty and are available on the WD store and at select retailers and distributors. MSRP of the My Passport Edge is $109.99 and $119.99 for the My Passport Edge for Mac portable hard drives.

So... what exactly is the difference that justifies $10 more for the "Mac version"? Or is it simply that Apple customers are willing to pay more?
