Seagate Technology has launched an external drive — Seagate Seven — a 500GB portable hard drive, ahead of CES 2015.
Seagate Seven 500GB portable hard drive will be priced at $99.99.
Seagate Seven evokes the legacy form factor of 2.5-inch internal hard drives.
The Seagate Seven drive is the slimmest way to carry 500GB of data, with the name representing the 7mm depth of the 500GB drive.

Mark Whitby, senior vice president of Seagate Branded Group, said: “We believe that Seagate Seven will resonate with those who want the latest trend in mechanical design while inspiring the user to create great experiences and memories.”
The Seagate Seven enclosure is made of steel to achieve the thinnest external drive and premium appearance. The steel encasing also provides a rigidity, which allows for the incredibly thin design to be functional.
The low profile motor technologies used in the bare drive are designed to include extreme Gyro handling capabilities with tablets and thin computing in mind.
