It’s no surprise to see external storage getting smaller physically while growing in capacity. The latest small storage device from Seagate continues this trend – the Slim comes in a very light offering – it’s almost smaller than a smartphone, but with 500GB of storage space. The device can be used on a Macintosh system, a Windows machine or a combination of both (if you install some Paragon software to enable read/write capabilities on both systems). In addition, backup software lets you grab content automatically from Facebook and Flickr to the drive (Windows software only). A USB 3.0 cable to enable higher-speed transfer of data (if your computer has USB 3.0 ports on it) enhances the Slim even more, especially if you are transferring lots and lots of data.

TBC (US$80)
