Dubbed the Rugged, the drive is encased in a hardened, scratch-resistant aluminum case. Other features are internal shock absorbers and a shock-resistant rubber bumper.

The eSATA connection delivers 90MBps data-transfer speeds, and the power eSATA connection allows the drive to be powered via whatever device to which it is attached, LaCie said.

LaCie is also including a free year of 10GB online storage space through Wuala.

The initial offering will have a 500GB capacity and a $159 suggested retail.
