Seagate’s new “Seven” external hard drive is beautiful and I want one


Before I start, let me just say – I want one of these. I want one of these so, so, so bad. Look at it – this is the new Seagate Seven external hard drive, a 500GB disk inside a beautiful, gorgeous, jaw dropping external enclosure complete with USB 3.0 support, all in a package barely any bigger than that iPhone 6 in your hipster brother’s pockets.

Seagate is releasing this bad boy as a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the company’s first mass market 5.25-inch hard disk, which also happened to be the fist of its kind in the world. I’d be willing to bet, though, that people who bought that first hard disk all those years ago weren’t getting 500GB of space, nor a package this small. And they probably would have asked what “USB” was.

The Seagate Seven will be available wherever decent external hard drives are sold by the end of January, and it’ll run you an actually fairly decent $99, and you can pre-order yours now over at Sign me up.
