Seagate has introduced its slimmest external hard drive, a 320-GB model that's roughly the width of a pencil and works with a Mac or Windows PC. The GoFlex Slim is 38% thinner than the previous GoFlex ultra-portable drive and weighs less than six ounces. The new product is about 5 inches high and 3 inches wide, making it easy to carry in a pocket or carrying bag. The Slim uses Seagate's 2.5-inch Momentus hard drive for thin notebooks and netbooks.

The Slim's black metal case includes a USB 3.0 port, which is compatible with USB 2.0, but can transfer data 10 times faster, when connected to another USB 3.0 port. The internal hard drive is also quick at 7200 revolutions per minute. The Slim comes with an 18-inch USB 3.0 cable and a three-year warranty. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $100.
