Looking for a portable hard drive that can handle the abuse of being dropped or bumped against a wall – not because you purposely like to throw electronics around, but because you have butter fingers. Well you’re in luck, because they actually make products for people like you! LaCie has just announced a new addition to its lineup of shock- and drop-resistant portable hard drives; the Rugged Mini.
The new Rugged Mini hard drives are 40% smaller than the previous model, rain-resistant and can withstand one ton of pressure. It features a scratch-resistant aluminum case and LaCie Private-Public software to keep your data safe electronically as well. Speed lovers will appreciate the hard drive’s USB 3.0 connection as well as its 7200 RPM speed.
The Rugged Mini will be available soon in 500GB or 1TB capacities with prices starting at $95.00. Head over to LaCie’s website for more details.
