The Seagate GoFlex Slim weighs 0.356lbs (160g) and measures 4.91 x 3.07 x 0.354in (124 x 78 x 9mm). That's pretty impressive when you consider most 2.5-inch notebook hard drives are 9.5mm thick without an enclosure. Seagate has opted for a spindle speed of 7200RPM and uses USB 3.0 for both data and power.
