VMUltra Drive Adds DVD Burner, Hard Drive, USB Ports and SD Reader: The Ultrabook Sidekick

by Lambert Varias

Having a slim and lightweight laptop is great for your back, but the hardware that it’s missing could be bad for your productivity. If you’re missing some of the bells and whistles of your desktop computer, PC and tablet maker Velocity Micro has got your back with the VMUltra Drive.

Short of a beefier CPU and GPU, the VMUltra Drive is basically everything that’s been cut out of traditional laptops to make the so-called Ultrabooks. In exchange for taking up a USB 3.0 port, this peripheral will give you an 8x DVD±R/RW burner and reader, two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port, an SD/SDHC/MMC reader and a hard drive bay that fits 2.5″ SATA drives. As if that wasn’t enough, it comes with a 500GB installed in the bay.

You can see more images of the VMUltra Drive on The Verge, but if you’re already throwing money at the screen – I’m keeping some of it! – head to Velocity Micro and pre-order the gadget for $200 (USD).
