Seagate finally unveils 750GB external drive


Around a week after details were accidentally leaked, Seagate has officially announced their 750GB external hard drive – a capacity posssible thanks to Seagate’s use of perpendicular technology.

The 750GB Pushbutton Back-up Hard Drive, which runs at 7,200rpm and contains 16MB of cache memory, features both USB and Firewire connections, and is available with both PC and Mac software that will automatically back up your computer’s hard drive when the button on the front of the drive is pressed.

The company says the drive will be available from May, shipping for around $559 (£310).
