Seagate Celebrates Anniversary with Slimmest Portable HDD

/ 6 years ago


Seagate celebrates Thirty-Five years of storage innovation with the launch of the beautiful Seagate Seven, the world’s slimmest portable hard drive. The new drive is built in an all-metal enclosure that is 7mm high and 82mm wide while weighing 90g. The Seagate Seven doesn’t just look awesome, it’s also useful with its 500GB capacity and USB 3 connection for transfers without bottlenecks.

“Seagate has been providing the world with storage since the modern origins of computing history,” said Mark Whitby, senior vice president of Seagate Branded Group. “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.”

The deep draw process used allows for the all-steel enclosure to be shaped in a method that the material could not be any thinner and still hold the structural integrity. The steel encasing also provides a rigidity, which allows for the incredibly thin design to be functional. while the low profile motor technologies used are designed to include extreme Gyro handling capabilities.

The new Seagate Seven 500GB portable hard drive will be available mid to late January for a suggested retail price of $99.99. Pre-orders can already be made at Seagate themselves and Amazon.
