The other new product is the Drobo Mini, which has space for four 2.5-inch drives as well as the extra SSD slot in the bottom. With all that, it checks in at 7" square by 2" high, which makes it about the same size as a Mac Mini. Like the 5D it requires external power, which is a little disappointing for a drive that's so small and fast, but it's understandable. There are certain concessions you make when running off Bus power and Drobo still seems fairly focused on performance. And even though you need to find a place to plug in, the ability to backup files at between 200-300 MB/s is still nice to have on the road. It even comes with its own carrying case.
