Running out of storage space on your notebook hard drive? Would an extra 160GB do ya? Newegg has the Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition on sale for $49.99 shipped. It's a compact, travel-friendly drive stocked with backup, sync, and system-rollback software.

I own one of these babies, and it's a slice of portable-storage heaven. However, I do wish it had an integrated USB cable instead of the separate one that's included. On the plus side, this is a new unit, not a refurb, and it includes a one-year warranty. CNET gave the OneTouch high marks, praising its solid performance, easy setup, and useful bundled software.

The USB-powered drive spins at 5,400 rpm, weighs 7.2 ounces, and works with Windows and Mac systems. Normally it sells for at least $75, so at 50 bucks shipped, Newegg is likely to blow through its inventory in a hurry. Don't wait if you want in on this deal.
