World's Slimmest 1TB Portable Hard Drive

How’s this for lightweight and data dense:

World's Slimmest 1TB Portable Hard Drive

This new 1TB GoFlex will use a new 2.5-inch drive with 2 platters — each at 500GB — to maintain a 9.5mm Z-height (the same height and depth as GoFlex ultra-portable drives at 640GB and below. The “slim” ultra-portable device also reaches a new areal density or per-platter capacity – previously, the drive was yielding 375GB per platter, and now it boasts 500GB.

Oh, and it’s now compatible with the GoFlex TV (the 1TB drive now slips right into the unit’s drive slot). These drives also come bundled with a pre-loaded copy of “Star Trek” for no additional fee, plus a selection of 20 other films from which to choose, and have a USB 3.0 cable included. Not so sure I’m as thrilled about that, though.
