In the saturated world of hard drives, it’s good to know that LaCie still pursues a goal of creating bewitchingly designed hard drives, even with something as pervasive and everyday as an external hard drive. But, they might have finally reached an apogee with their latest collaboration with Porsche Design. The drives’ telltale design element is a thick layer of aluminum, which encases the drive not only protect its contents but to also aid in heat dissipation — and do so with refined, Teutonic style. Just get a load of that LED status light. The drives are offered in a 500GB mobile (P’9330) or 1TB or 2TB desktop configurations with USB 2.0 or zippy USB 3.0 (P’9230), and of course a version designed to match your Mac’s aluminum case (P’9231).
