Feel external hard drives are clunky? How about something that is slimmer than the iPhone plus? To raise a toast for its 35 years into storage business, Seagate has launched Seagate Seven which it touts to be the world’s slimmest portable hard drive. At 7mm, it has to be.
Strengthened with a premium all-metal steel casing and weighing a mere 93 grams , the slim hard drive has a 500GB capacity to carry around your data safely and conveniently. The Seven is equipped with a Micro USB 3.0 port (compatible with USB 2.0), which is also used to power the device, and works with both Windows and Mac platforms.
The company claims that the latest drive technologies and deep draw manufacturing process allows for the all steel enclosure to be shaped in a method that the material could not be any thinner while still holding the structural integrity required for an external portable storage device. The low profile motor technologies used in the bare drive are designed to include extreme Gyro handling capabilities so that it can work well within tablets and thin computing.
The Seagate Seven will be widely available in mid to late January for a suggested retail price of $99.99. Pre-orders can be made at the company site and at Amazon. It also comes with a 2-years limited warranty.
