LaCie has announced that their Little Big Disk SSD external storage drive will come with built in Thunderbolt ports. This isn’t your normal peripheral because it comes packed with 2 Intel 510 series Solid-State hard drives instead of the usual SATA drives we’re all used to.

No pricing or exact release date has been announced.
