Deadlines rule our world. When digital storage is critical for your project, it had better be as fast and reliable as you are. From the desktop to the badlands, it has to connect to any computer, deliver more than enough speed for the most demanding applications, and protect data against any threat. Enter the LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt Series.
Don't let your project get derailed by external drive/computer incompatibility. With both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces, the LaCie Rugged is a perfect match for your Mac® and PC. And because USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, you can connect it to any standard computer on the planet. The LaCie Rugged is also fully bus-powered through the included USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt* cables. Its portability and interfaces make it the must-have sidekick to a new Mac or Ultrabook™.
Perfect for you MCBOOK PRO
Pros: This drive is very fast and stays very cool. Great form factor. You can run your OSX from this drive if you want. Works great on OS Mavericks. Comes with Thunderbolt cable.
Other Thoughts: While not much faster than USB3 in my use, it does not have the USB issues that OSX Mavericks seems to have for me. The ability to chain Thunderbolt devices beats USB3 as well. It would be great if LaCie would have a bring your own drive option.

Solid State FAST
Pros: My connection is fast (thunderbolt) but speed also depends on the speed of the drive... with a solid state drive with thunderbolt, I can actually see the difference in speed... unlike other drives that say, sure the connection speed is fast - but only as fast as your drive.... and this drive is FAST!
Cons: Time will tell, I wish they came with more memory.
