G-Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of Western Digital Corp., has introduced the industry’s first consumer-oriented external hard drives – the new G-Drive slim and G-Drive mobile – with 7200rpm spindle speed as well as 20% - 40% higher performance compared to competing solutions that rely on traditional hard disk drives with lower rotating speed.

"In this digital world, we all need reliable, fast storage to protect the photos, videos and music that mean the most to us. Whether you are a professional photographer needing to store and protect content in the field, or a consumer needing a simple storage and backup solution, our new portable external drives are the solution. Each external drive delivers performance, reliability and style in a sleek, portable design," said Mike Williams, vice president and general manager, G-Technology.

G-Drive slim with USB 3.0 features Travelstar Z7K500, a 7mm z-height, 7200rpm hard drive. G-Drive slim delivers transfer rates of up to 125MB/s, nearly 23% faster than other 5400rpm based external drives. The product is available today with an MSRP of $89.95.

G-drive mobile USB 3.0 external drive is features 1TB/7200rpm (Travelstar7K1000) mobile hard drive. The HDD delivers transfer speeds of up to 136MB/s, which is up to 43% faster than its 5400rpm. The 1TB G-Drive mobile USB 3.0 has a MSRP of $139.95.

Both drives are Time Machine compatible and are bus-powered so when you're out and about you don't need to add an external AC power supply to your bag or laptop case. Each drive is formatted for Mac, but can be easily reformatted for Windows. USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

No size for the G-Drive slim ??

Going by the price of the desktop g-drive I would say no more than 500GB, wayyy too expensive for both drives, not to mention HEAT DEATH
