LaCie don’t just make technology, they design it. Or rather, they get someone in to design it – like the Rugged All-Terrain and 2.5-inch Little Disk drives, designed by Neil Poulton and Sam Hecht respectively.
Both are on show at CES with increased capacities, both boosted to 320GB. The Little Disk is available in either USB 2.0 or USB2.0/FireWire 400, while the Rugged is available in USB 2.0 and a USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and FireWire800 version. The LaCie Rugged is a tough drive with aluminium shell and rubber bumper to protect against everyday damage. The Little Disk has a high-gloss finish and a removable protective cap, with integrated, extractable USB cable. Bundled synchronisation software allows you to access and modify files, emails (Microsoft Outlook) or personal settings.
Both drives (with increased capacity) will be available late January from LaCie direct for £129 including VAT.
