Two of them for Mac

Seagate has announced a range of five new FreeAgent drives, of which two have been made specifically for Mac users with FireWire 800/400 and USB 2.0 interface. The more PC centric drives don't get the FireWire interface unless you go for the XTreme model, but it only has FireWire 400, although it also has eSATA which should speed things up significantly.

Starting with the FreeAgent Go for Mac, you'll be able to get it in 250, 320 and 500GB flavors and it comes with a desktop dock. The FreeAgent Desk for Mac is a free standing unit with capacity option including 500GB, 1 and 1.5TB.

The FreeAgent Go for PC is available in the same sizes as the Mac version, but the dock is optional, although it will be available in silver, black, red and blue, with the latter two colors only coming in 320GB. The FreeAgent Desk adds a 640GB SKU to the sizes available in the Mac version. Finally, the FreeAgent XTreme will be available in the same sizes as the Desk model, but with the added advantage of multiple interfaces.

The FreeAgent Go for Mac will cost $159.99 for the 250GB version and $189.99 for the 320GB version with no price for the 500GB version at the moment. The FreeAgent Desk for Mac starts at $169.99 for the 500GB model, going up to $269.99 for 1TB and $349.99 for 1.5TB.

The FreeAgent Go 250GB is $119.99, the 320GB comes in at $149.99 and the 500GB at $239.99 with the dock priced at $29.99. The FreeAgent Desk will be available in October with the 500GB version going for $129.99, the 640GB model for $149.99, the 1TB model for $229.99 and finally the 1.5TB model for $279.99. Finally, the FreeAgent XTreme starts at $159.99 for the 500GB model, going up to $179.99 for the 640GB model, $259.99 for the 1TB model and $299.99 for the 1.5TB model.
