Mac Format - - CONTENTS - £230 la­cie.com

What is it? Most ex­ter­nal hard drives aren’t at the lead­ing edge of de­sign, in­stead be­ing de­fined al­most en­tirely by func­tion. But La­Cie have rethought the hard drive as a thing of beauty, some­thing to be ad­mired as much for its gor­geous looks as its stor­age specs. Coated in re­flec­tive Go­rilla Glass and held in an ebony wood stand, the Mir­ror is a con­ver­sa­tion piece crafted with a de­sign ethic front and cen­tre, rather than as an af­ter­thought. When’s it due? Avail­able now. Why are we ex­cited? We’ve fi­nally got an ex­ter­nal hard drive to match our Macs for style. Will we spend more time gaz­ing long­ingly at it than ac­tu­ally do­ing work? Per­haps, but who can blame us? Sigh...
