Gigabyte Intros A2 Tiny Portable Hard Drive

Gigabyte introduced A2 Tiny, a tiny version of the A2 portable hard drive series. Measuring just 78 x 59 x 13 mm (D x W x H), the A2 Tiny houses a 1.8-inch SATA hard drive, the original A2 packed a 2.5-inch drive. Its compact size and its 80 g weight makes it extremely portable. The A2 Tiny comes in just one capacity for now, 160 GB. It uses USB 2.0 interface for power and data transfer. Its enclosure packs a shock-absorbing mechanism to protect the delicate hard drive, although the company didn't give out a shock resistance figure. It is available in just one color option, Charcoal Gray. Along with its USB cable, the package includes a carrying pouch. Gigabyte didn't give out pricing or availability information.

The cables needed to connect it to the computer are nearly as big (once coiled), just give me memory cables and be done with it.
Actually I should patent that...

an exact copy of this:



Xigmatek used to make this, don't know if they still do or not. From the looks of it, Gigabyte probably bought the rights to the design n just slap their name on it.

Or even better, Xigmatek is actually making these for Gigabyte and slapping their logo on it as well.
