If USB flash drives aren't quite your thing and you're looking for something with just a little more room for a nice price, Seagate have announced their "SEVEN" - the world's thinnest external drive. Coming in at seven millimeters thick and with 500GB of external storage, this whole package will only set you back $100.




Now we know the price isn't amazing, seeing as you can get general 1TB external drives for as cheap as $60 through Amazon, the Seagate Seven is the closest size you'll get to a USB key device, which will set you back around $350 for only 256GB



Being released mid-to-late January, Seagate's Seven includes a steel shell surrounding an ultra-thin laptop drive. Designed with simplicity in mind, there are no ugly decals, company stickers or special colors on this device - its simply a very elegant and sleek design, which we quite enjoy.
