LaCie Porsche Design USB 3.0 Hard Drives

For most of us, external hard drives—whether they be desktop or mobile—have become a necessary evil of modern computing. But they need not be something you want to hide behind your monitor, in a drawer, or inside an old shoe box. These new LaCie Porsche Design USB 3.0 Hard Drives ($105-$160) feature stylish enclosures that you’ll be proud to display on your desk.

Available in desktop (P’9230) or mobile (P’9220) versions, these drives feature sleek, scratch-resistant aluminum frames designed by the boys in Austria, thin, slot-like status lights, and USB 3.0 compatibility to offer speeds up to four times faster than USB 2.0, giving you a hint of future-proofing should Apple ever release a Thunderbolt-to-USB 3.0 adapter, or better yet, simply build the necessary ports right into their machines.
