Losing weight, that is. If you have room in your pocket for an iPhone 4, you have room for 320 GB of lean storage capacity, with the Seagate GoFlex Slim.
The amazingly skinny GoFlex Slim is approximately to the old ST-412 what an iPhone 4 is to a briefcase "portable phone" from the early 1990s.
Streamlined and condensed to be the size of an iPhone 4, the GoFlex Slim is perhaps Seagate's most user-friendly external drive yet.
It's fast - 7200 RPM and USB 3.0 (which is of course backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 ports, if your computer, like mine, wasn't manufactured in 2011), and the drive inside is SATA 2 (ie, 3 Gbits/sec), making it cutting-edge for direct-attached external storage products.
It's compatible between Mac and PC with its included NTFS driver. No need to reformat.
It gives peace of mind - the bundled Memeo Backup Premium gives it the ability to create disaster recovery image backups and schedule them.
It's secure - Memeo Backup Premium can encrypt your entire backup.
It's thoughtful and loyal - Memeo can easily restore previous versions of backed-up files.
It's versatile - It can be paired with any other GoFlex cable module if you want to use powered eSATA or FireWire 800, or with the GoFlex Dock that comes with GoFlex Pro, if you should happen to have one already.
It's attractive, with a brushed-aluminum look and a profile that shows it's been laying off the carbs this year. Whereas the GoFlex and GoFlex Pro drives are both 2.5-inch notebook-size drives, they are the normal 9.5 mm size, whereas the unit inside the GoFlex Slim is Seagate's 7 mm Momentus Thin drive.
It's compact and solidly built, with an anodized outer shell.
The GoFlex Slim is another step forward in humanity's quest to make technology more accessible and portable. Give it a look - it's the future.
