The quest for the slimmest hard drive has been ongoing for years, and it continues to this very day, with Seagate’s latest offering, the Seagate Seven drive. This new drive has earned the title of the slimmest ever in the world. What makes the Seagate Seven hard drive stand out from the rest?
It is the slimmest 500GB hard drive from the company. The name represents the 7mm depth of the 500GB drive. Along with this thin casing, it has a simple industrial design. This one is all about being the thinnest and most compact while still delivering that 500GB.
It features a premium all-metal enclosure that ensures that it is rigid enough to take some punishment while being so anorexic. If this is the new hard drive that you have been looking for, you can expect the Seagate Seven to be available from mid- to late January at $99.99 each. That’s not a bad price for the thinnest hard drive you can buy currently. Remember the days when you couldn’t get 500 GB for anywhere near that price? Does anyone care to wager on how long it takes others to create a functional hard drive that is even thinner than this one?
