LaCie ups the storage ante with stylish new Porsche Design Drives

LaCie-Porsche-DesignI am quite sure that many a young person would aspire to live the good life by the time they leave university – that is, to hold a stable job, to be able to pay off their student loans and also make a downpayment on their dream home, go for a nice vacation each year, and of course, drive at least a respectable ride. Now, those who grew up in an environment that idolizes fast cars and a beautiful or handsome other half would definitely see the value of owning a Porsche or some other equivalent exotic sports car, but if your finances are far from such capabilities at the moment and yet you would still want to own a Porsche, perhaps you can settle for the LaCie Porsche Design Drives. LaCie has come up with unique portable drives before like the LEGO version, so this collaboration with Porsche is not surprising.

These unique storage drives are kept within a sleek all-aluminum enclosure which reflect the signature Porsche Design style, where one can choose from new Mobile and Desktop Drives that will boast of forward-thinking USB-C connectivity that also carry the highest capacities on the market in a compact form factor.

Not only that, they come with the new USB-C connector that will play nice with next-generation computers such as the latest MacBook. This particular feature makes the drive incredibly easy to connect, as both ends of the cable are identical and the connector itself is reversible. Hence, you will not run into issues, in connecting the drive to a USB-C computer in the wrong way. Apart from that, you will be able to cut down on waiting times as transfer speeds are speedy enough, letting one drag and drop files and perform backups in peace. Best of all is, they will play nice with standard USB 3.0 (Type-A) ports as well.

The LaCie Porsche Design Mobile Drive will be available in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities with a starting price of $109.95 upwards, while those who would want to opt for the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive will be able to choose from 4TB, 5TB and 8TB capacities, with prices beginning at $209.95.
