Well, that was quick. As soon as Apple dropped its new line-up of MacBook Pros featuring Intel's new high-speed data I/O technology, Thunderbolt (a.k.a. Light Peak), hard drive specialist LaCie announced its first Thunderbolt-capable external hard drive.

Sporting two 250GB solid state drives, the Little Big Disk is capable of transferring data at Thunderbolt's 10Gbps speed. It can perform full-system backups in minutes and simultaneously upload and download HD video content without any compromises in speed.

You won't be able to cop one until this summer and while there's no official pricing, expect to drop some serious paper.
