I’ve said it before and I will almost certainly say it again: Technology continues to get smaller and smaller, almost every day. The latest milestone is a portable hard drive from Seagate, which is purportedly the thinnest in the world. It’s the Seagate Seven, so named for its scant seven millimeter width.
The Seagate Seven has 500GB of storage, all of which is encased in solid steel, which will hopefully keep the hard drive from experiencing the “bending” issues that have been plaguing ultra-thin tech devices as of late. The product’s steel construction also allows for identification and branding info to be stamped directly onto the surface, eliminating the need for stickers or labels later on.
You can watch a short promotional video for the Seagate Seven (which might also encourage you to go on a diet) below. And for more information, as well as to place a $99 pre-order for when the hard drive ships out later this month, head over to the Seagate website here.
