Gadget of the Day: 250GB Seagate FreeAgent

Your shiny new Leopard-loaded Mac with its nifty Time Machine back-up is useless without a trusty spot to actually back-up to. So may we suggest this

Your shiny new Leopard-loaded Mac with its nifty Time Machine back-up is useless without a trusty spot to actually back-up to. So may we suggest this bargain external hard drive from memory masters Seagate.

As well as co-ordinating nicely with your black and silver iMac or all-black MacBook, it also offers a hearty 250GB of space, all covered by a reassuring five-year guarantee.

Of course, you can also use it with a PC for all your photo, music, movie and document needs – just without the never-lose-a-file-again niceties of Time Machine.

Either way, at this price it's a steal. Just make sure you bag it before January 22, when it goes "back up" to £70.
