If you’ve ever wanted an ultra-slim hard disk drive to go along with your MacBook Air or other supermodel-thin device, now’s your chance: the Seagate Seven is set to be the world’s thinnest HDD ever — measuring just 7mm thick.
To put that in perspective, that’s 01.mm thinner than even the slimline iPhone 6 Plus: an astonishing engineering feat, which also pulls off the difficult task of being a gorgeous piece of design. On top of that, it offers 500GB of storage, excellent speeds, and USB 3.0 connectivity.
What more could you ask for?
The Seven arrives to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the ST-506: the world’s first mass-produced 2.5-inch desktop hard drive, which gave users the ability to store files of up to 5MB total.
As far as statements about how far we’ve come since then, this is the perfect calling card for HDD technology circa 2015.
Seagate’s slimline portable hard disk will be available to hold all your movies, music and other files from mid-to-late January, priced at $99.99.
