LaCie flexes with 1TB hard drive

After marketing designer products, the storage maker shows it isn't just another pretty face.

LaCie

LaCie has been pimping its designer good looks for the last several months, but the company also wants us to know that it's not just another pretty face. To wit: It just debuted a 1-terabyte external hard drive that emphasizes its power and capacity more than appearance. (It's just an upright black box, a la 2001: A Space Odyssey.)

The drive is the largest of three externals LaCie is releasing, according to Engadget, the others being another desktop model of 250GB to 500GB in size and a mobile disk that ranges from 80GB to 320GB. All of which is well and good, but we'll always have a soft spot for the " Golden Disk ."
