If you're looking for a convenient and flexible external USB hard disk, Seagate has just launched what it claims is the slimmest available: the GoFlex Slim.

At just 9mm thick and (for those with long enough memories) about the same footprint as a PalmPilot PDA (see below), the 160g GoFlex Slim's understated anodised chassis contains a 2.5in. hard drive spinning at 7,200rpm. The 320GB unit in our possession costs £79.99 (inc. VAT).

The removable interface adapter at the back of the drive is a USB 3.0 device, giving a theoretical data transfer rate around ten times that of USB 2.0, with which it is backwards compatible. The drive is supplied with a 46cm (18in.) USB 3.0 cable, as well as backup software (with encryption) preloaded on the drive.

You can use the GoFlex Slim with Windows (XP or higher) or Mac (OS X 10.5.8 or higher) systems — an NTFS driver for Mac is also preloaded.
