Linux Hard drive vendor LaCie has teamed up with Mandriva on a bus-powered USB 2.0 hard drive preloaded with desktop Linux. The "GlobeTrotter" boots Mandriva Linux LE 2005, and is available in 40GB and 80GB models priced at $140 [EUR 119] and $199 [EUR 168], respectively. The GlobeTrotter drives feature an industrial design by F.A. Porsche. The devices have rubber feet, a passively cooled case design, and a low-power drive that, unlike most USB drives, requires no separate power adapter, instead pulling power through the host PC's USB port.

You have to love the fact that the drive has "Designed by F.A. Porsche" written on the side of it in rather big font. Perhaps instead of this, the designer could have wrote something useful such as the hard drive capacity.
