This Portable Hard Drive Is Your For-Media-Hoarders Deal of the Day

Portable hard drives have never been called sexy. They're simply not the most desirable gadget. You know what is worth lusting over? Ultrabooks. They're skinny, tapered, and fast. They're the sports car of the gadget world. But like sports cars, they don't come with much space. The 128GB of flash memory in my laptop means it flies, but I have to leave my media at home. Theres no room for any junk in the trunk at all.

What storage-challenged laptops really need is an old fashioned spinning hard disk. Not inside the computer, because that would ruin the design. Preferably, it's a HD that's huge in storage space, but has a small footprint. And it should draw power from the computer. This reliable Western Digital HD fits the bill—it's only a third of a pound, it doesn't need its own outlet, and you can fit 1TB of movies, music, and media on it. And with USB 3.0, you'll see fast transfer speeds, perfect for pairing with your shiny new thin-and-light laptop. [NewEgg]
