Running low on space in your overpriced Lamborghini VX6 or VX7 computer? Well, you’re in luck, since Asus just released a new supercar-inspired accessory to handle just that: the Lamborghini External HDD.
Like the notebooks, the USB-connected storage comes in a housing clad in eye-catching Lambo-styled lines. I mean, look at that picture — it looks ready to race right out of your desk and into the lush countryside.
The Lamborghini External HDD comes in either 500GB or 700GB versions, tethered to either a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector. In the USB 2.0 model, the 2.5-inch disk platters spin at 5,400 rpm; for the USB 3.0, the speed goes up to 7,200 RPM. All drives come with FlexSave, Asus’ GUI-drenched software for managing the backup and storage of your files.
Case dimensions are 5.33 x 3.13 x 0.7 inches, with that cannot-miss Lamborghini logo slapped right on the hood. They’re available in a shiny finish of either black or white (yep, no red — booo).
External hard drives are cheap. But this is a Lamborghini External HDD, so you know the rules don’t apply. The USB 2.0 versions will retail at $120 for the 500GB and $140 for the 700GB (about twice the price of regular drives). No word on pricing for the USB 3.0 models.
