When it comes to hard drive makers, there are only a couple of ways they can stand out in the crowd: Make ‘em smaller, make ‘em bigger or add connectivity. In the case of Seagate, they’ve gone with “make ‘em bigger” for their latest GoFlex Desk, which now tops out at a whopping 4TB for only $249.
With an overseas trip coming up, the iPad and its non-expandable storage wasn’t going to be able to keep me entertained during several long flights. Besides, converting a ton of video files and transferring them over to the iPad seems to take forever. Luckily, Seagate has my back. Their GoFlex Satellite stores a ton of media, and it can stream in iPad-friendly formats over its own Wi-Fi network.
Since its debut in 2008, Apple’s Time Capsule has been a study in simplicity and elegance. Offering its users an all-in-one wireless internet gateway and impeccable storage and backup solution, it’s a peripheral device that simply oozes win. For those of us that bought our Time Capsules back in 2008, however, it’s also a device that’s beginning to get a little long in the tooth, especially in the face of the stellar 2TB and 3TB storage update Cupertino gave it this past June. If you’re made of money, you could opt to fork over $499 for a taste of Apple’s new wireless backup hotness, or with a little hard work, you can upgrade your existing Time Capsule with a brand new high-speed 3TB drive for less than half that price. Here’s how to do it.

If the performance of your unibody MacBook Pro just isn't cutting it, it might be time to consider swapping out the stock hard drive for something a little more speedy, like a solid-state drive. And actually, when we say a little more speedy, we actually mean that you can double the speed of your current system by swapping out the stock hard drive for an SSD.
There are plenty of manufacturers who offer SSDs made especially for your unibody MacBook Pro, and physically installing the hardware is actually quite a cinch. Follow along and we'll show you how.
Tired of all those precious gigabytes of B movie horror flicks taking up your Mac's internal hard drive? Seagate is debuting two new portable drives formatted especially for Mac users, so you can keep your media seperate from your main system.
