Seagate shows super-slim external hard drive

Seagate's newest external drive is only about as thick as a smartphone.

Can a hard drive be thin? Absolutely.

Seagate Tuesday showcased its latest GoFlex drive, with a narrow profile -- 9mm thin profile, to be exact. The as-yet unnamed drive packs a 7mm hard drive with 320GB on a single platter, a rotation speed of 7200rpm, and a USB 3.0 connector. The drive is 38 percent slimmer than the 14mm standard GoFlex portable drives. The drive has a black, brushed aluminum chassis, and looks to be a fine complement for mobile devices like a tablet or thin-and-light notebook.

No pricing as yet, but Seagate says we can expect it to ship in spring 2011.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
