The company claims that the new drive is 38 percent leaner than the current GoFlex ultra-portable drives, and has roughly the width of a pencil.
Equipped with a 7200RPM drive and a USB3.0 interface, the drive also supports Windows and Mac computers, interchangeably, without formatting or performance loss.
“The continued growth of personal digital media stores, our increasingly mobile lifestyles and the continued proliferation of mobile devices are driving the demand for slimmer, more portable storage solutions,” said Patrick Connolly, vice president and general manager of Retail, Seagate. “Netbooks and slim laptops are great for consuming media, but are limited when it comes to creating and storing high—definition films and photos."
The GoFlex Slim portable drive will also be available for Mac OS X computers.
