Toshiba on Wednesday revealed a 2.5-inch portable external hard drive with a whole lot of space.

The company says its new 640GB 5400RPM drive (model MK6465GSX) is the industry's largest in this form factor, and is part of a family of drives that includes 500GB and 320GB capacities (and 250GB and 160GB capacities as naked drives).

For your family, that means up to 182,000 digital photos, 168,000 digital music files or 520 downloaded digital movies, the company says.

Packed into USB 2.0 enclosures named "Vivid White," "Liquid Blue," "Komodo Green" and "Rocket Red," the drive will fit into your computer bag or briefcase rather nicely. The six-ounce, 0.65-inch-thick drive is compatible with Mac and PC.

The 640GB external drive will be available for $179.99.
