Seagate Reveals World’s Thinnest Portable Drive

Source: PC Advisor Magazine [Jul 11]

9mm-thick GoFlex is significantly slimmer than Seagate’s existing GoFlex line-up.


Seagate has exposed what it claims is the world’s slimmest claims is the word’s slimmest portable hard drive. The 160g GoFlex Slim is just 9mm thick, which is meaningfully slimmer than the firm’s 14mm-thick GoFlex portable drive.


The drive’s width is about that of a pencil, and not much larger than many smartphones.


Inside is a version of the 7mm-thick Momentus Thin drive, announced in 2009 for smaller and thinner laptops and netbooks. Despite having only a 1mm-thick protective casing, the GoFlex Slim has shock absorption built in.

Netbooks and slim laptops are great for overwhelming media, but are limited when it comes to creating and storing HD films and photos,” said Seagate’s retail storage vice-president, Patrick Connolly.

The technical specs include a 7,200rpm spin speed and USB 3.0 connectivity. There’s no encryption technology built in, although an unnamed backup suite lets you apply 192bit DES security.


The GoFlex Slim drive was expected to go on sale in the US at press time, costing $99 for the entry-level 320GB model. Exact UK pricing and details about larger-capacity versions have yet to be accounced.

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is.
