External drives are great, but they’re often bulky. That might be fine if you’re after something rugged, but what if you want one that fits into luggage without a second thought? Seagate has something at CES this year for that.
The gadget that will win over lovers of style and anyone else who demands something thin and light to match their new ultra-light computer is a hard drive, and it bears the name “Seven” because, well, that’s the size being offered.
Seagate’s new ultra-thin drive offers a 7mm thickness, and takes the design of the hard drive normally found under the body of a laptop and brings it to the surface, with a minimalist take on how it should look.
Bare and metal is what we’re seeing, and we’re reminded of the simple look internal drives take, albeit without the green silicon strip we expect to see, and a fill slab of steel covering the drive.
“Seagate has been providing the world with storage since the modern origins of computing history,” said Seagate’s Mark Whitby.
“Seagate Seven is designed to speak to this history, while looking forward to the future of where storage technology is headed. We believe that Seagate Seven will resonate with those who want the latest trend in mechanical design while inspiring the user to create great experiences and memories.”
