First announced nearly two years ago, mLogic’s original mBack never actually made it to market. Based on feedback, the company decided to redesign the mountable hard drive to support 2.5” platters. Now, mBack ($100-$260) is a real, shipping product that you can get your hands on. The concept is the same, but some real improvements have been made.
mBack’s key attribute is its ability to mount on the back of late-2009 and newer iMacs and Apple displays, fitting into the round hole found on the back of their legs. It comes in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities, with all three featuring USB 3.0 speed and power. It’s an especially smart choice for those who prefer uncluttered desks.
