Seagate’s Svelte New External Hard Drive

By  |  Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at 9:22 pm

Thin is in, and Seagate has answered that call by launching the thinnest external hard drive on the market. Dubbed the GoFlex Slim, the drive has 320GB of storage and retails for $99.99. The drive measures in at about 9mm, which is about the average overall height of the MacBook Air.

If your computer supports USB 3.0, you’ll be able to take advantage of the faster transfer speeds with the GoFlex Slim. It is also compatible with both the Mac and PC, and includes backup software with the device. For you Apple purists, there is a Mac-only version available, making it an appealing companion for Time Machine.

From where Seagate is going with this drive, its market is pretty obvious: netbooks and ultraportable notebooks. If you’re going with something that small, you’re not going to want a bulky external drive with it — so Seagate sees a natural market for a drive that puts the emphasis on thinness, even though it’s possible to buy a chunkier drive with higher capacity for the same price.

    I would like to show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this particular matter. Right after searching throughout the online world and seeing things which were not pleasant, I assumed my life was over. Living without the presence of solutions to the issues you’ve solved by means of this guide is a critical case, as well as ones which might have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t come across the blog. The skills and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was important. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such stuff like this. I can at this point relish my future. Thanks very much for your professional and result oriented guide. I won’t think twice to recommend the website to any individual who needs guidelines on this subject matter.
