December 27, 2004

LaCie today announces that Roxio’s award-winning Toast® 6 Titanium CD and DVD burning software will be bundled with its ultra portable FireWire DVD burner, the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Double Layer Design by FA Porsche. Mobile Mac users can now utilize the powerful Toast® software while on the road to create and copy data, music and photos, as well as backup their entire system to DVD.

"Our ongoing partnership with Roxio allows us to bring the best DVD burning software to mobile Mac users," says Salem Tirane, LaCie Product Manager. "Toast recording software helps people do even more with iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand, and space conscious travelers will appreciate the thin form factor of the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Double Layer."

With a sleek design by FA Porsche, the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Double Layer is ideal for use with today’s ultra thin Apple iBooks and PowerBooks. Burners are powered by the FireWire interface, allowing for optimal recording speeds without the need to carry an extra AC adapter while traveling. Double layer burning technology comes standard on all LaCie DVD burners, allowing people to create Hollywood-length DVDs or back up 8.5GB data*. The latest Toast® software bundled with the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Double Layer makes this burner the most versatile and durable option available to mobile Mac users.

The LaCie Slim DVD±RW Double Layer Design by FA Porsche ships in December 2004 with a retail price of $219 (SKU 300781). For more information on LaCie DVD drives, visit:
