The 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex Slim drive would make an ideal storage partner to go with your Ultrabook thanks to its tidy, slim dimensions (124x78x9mm – yes, just 9mm thick) and weighing in at a mere 160g. It's not just the size that is alluring however, it sports a decent 7200rpm 2.5-inch drive and features USB 3.0 connectivity to make good use of the extra performance on offer.

The drive is yet to hit retail but is expected to come in at about €129 (US $169).
