Seagate adds colors to Go
Portable and internal hard drive maker Seagate on Wednesday announced the upcoming release of its FreeAgent Go drives in a wide range of colors. In addition to the previously available red, blue, black and silver FreeAgent Go drives, the new color options include two kinds of green, a lighter blue, pink, orange and gold. Each drive from the FreeAgent Go range originally launched in September will come with a bonus multimedia package when owners register them between November 28th and New Year's day.
As part of Seagate's Load Me Up promotion, users can download 50 free songs and one free movie rental from eMusic, as well as a 50 percent discount from the first year's subscription to photo-sharing website SmugMug.
The FreeAgent Go portable drives use a 2.5-inch HDD and connect to PCs or Macs via a dock connector in addition to a USB port. The drives include a leatherette carrying case and are available in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB capacities, priced at just shy of $120, $150 and $200, respectively. The FreeAgent Go desktop docking station is available for about $30.
