Seagate is celebrating their 35th anniversary, by introducing to the world its first slimmest PC hard drive yet. The new Seagate “Seven” is an all-steel, 500GB, 5-mm Angsana hard drive. Seagate claims that their steel slab is “thinner” than Apple’s iPhone 6+. Seagate’s new Seven is so thin that it even looks just like an internal drive.
Even with its compact size, the Seven has a very rugged and solid appearance. Seagate says the drive’s case is strong enough to withstands shocks, accidental drops and even being run over by a small car. The Seven supports USB 3.0 and comes with just one Micro-USB 3.0 port for both power and data connections. The drive is also compatible with USB 2.0 and works with Windows and Macs.
