LaCie Porsche Hard Drives: Speedy and Sporty, Just Like Their Cars
June 28th, 2011
While I admire LaCie’s efforts in designing good-looking hard drives, their new mobile Porsche drives look even better than most. The latest hard drives include the LaCie Porsche Design Mobile P’9220 and Desktop P’9230 Hard Drives.
Both models are compatible with USB 3.0, meaning that they’ll not just look spiffy, but be quite speedy. Also, the housing looks minimal and elegant, since it’s mostly made out of brushed aluminum. The aluminum is scratch-proof, so you won’t have to worry about scuffing it up too quickly. As I’ve learned from my own MacBook Pro, aluminum works great for dissipating heat too.
The mobile version comes in 500GB and 1TB capacities, while the desktop version is available in 1TB or 2TB sizes. The mobile version starts at $109.99 (USD), while the desktop ranges from $119.99 to $159.99.
