- Clear PC: Secret Agent Case

ClearPC® have a press release out announcing the availability of a very unique acrylic PC case designed in the form of a briefcase. It's primarily aimed at all you die-hard James Bond fanatics, and titled as the ClearPC® "Secret Agent" or C.S.A. for short. You can grab the full PR in the form of a PDF doc here! (remember to rightclick - "save target as"). For more pics, info, etc. as well as placing your order(s) online, head on over to the official Secret Agent Briefcase website.


We've been instructed to fully disclose all relevant details to you now: information once considered [ TOP SECRET ]. To begin: The ClearPC® Secret Agent (C.S.A.) is a lightweight, small-footprint, tough, all-clear acrylic computer case for Full-ATX and Micro-ATX size circuit boards using a unique unibody construction found in no other device. It is intended for maximum portability, full-size computer carrying convenience (maximum gaming) in a tight rounded package. No external edge on the C.S.A. is square and it utlizies only two thumbscrews in its construction: the remainder of the enclosure is factory assembled using a molecular bonding agent.


- Seagate 160GB External Hard Drive


The guys from ClubOC have a review up of Seagate's 160GB external hard disk. It sports 8mb of cache, and offers connection via USB 2.0 or firewire. It also seems to be one of the fastest external storage devices around thus far.


The usefulness of an external and easily portable storage device has grown dramatically over the last year. Digital media (video and audio) has become very easy to master and manipulate, thanks largely to outstanding third-party software that is both affordable and easy to use. Media and personal data files can quickly consume a moderate size (60-100 Gig) hard drive and leave you with barely enough room to save a Word document. If the external storage unit doesn't have a large capacity with a fair degree of speediness, then the storage becomes more of headache and less of an aide. External hard drives in self-contained enclosures have become very popular for all of the above benefits; Portability, size, and speed.
