seagate-seven[CES 2015] It goes without saying that the competition for the slimmest device has been going on for quite some time already, with smartphones coming under the spotlight most of the time. Having said that, how about hard drives? While we have seen LaCie roll out a couple of Rugged and Mirror hard drives today, Seagate decided to take a slightly different route – with the revealing of its Seagate Seven drive.

What makes the Seagate Seven hard drive so special from the rest? It happens to be the slimmest 500GB hard drive from them – where the name does not depict the samurai of Japan, but rather, the 7mm depth of the 500GB drive. Boasting of a simple industrial design, the Seagate Seven pays tribute to the roots of computer storage at the same time celebrating the latest advancements in storage innovation.

Boasting of a premium all-metal enclosure, it highlights the essence of a bare hard drive, which has been Seagate’s core competency for over 35 years.The steel enclosure ensures that it delivers a rigidity form factor so that despite being thin, it is entirely functional to boot. Expect the Seagate Seven to be available from mid- to late January onward at $99.99 a pop. [Press Release]
