If you’re looking for a great deal on a portable hard drive, here you are. Amazon is offering a Western Digital My Passport 500GB portable USB 2.0 powered hard drive for just $49.99 with free shipping, which is 58% off the retail price for the “Robot Design”, named so because of the funky robot case artwork.

This is Western Digitals smallest portable hard drive, measuring 4.3″ x 3.2″ x 0.6″ which is about an inch wider than an iPhone or iPod touch. This would be a great gift for the holidays or a solid addition to any portable computing setup.
