    Specifically formatted to work with Mac?

    Just like every other external drive made in the last 10 years?

    This is almost as dumb as the 'gaming grade' SD cards a few months back.

    It's JUST A HARD DRIVE.

    This is the kind of "Mac" stuff I hate to see. Any hard drive works on Mac.
