Product: Seagate FreeAgent Desk and FreeAgent Go for Mac

This weekend we got down to the nitty gritty business of changing out a secondary internal hard drive. We had to change out the guts of our system after filling it to the brim with HD content from iTunes (we've finally jumped into watching Heroes and thus found ourselves with zero room after partially downloading Season 1). The admittedly modest 160GB drive of music and video moved over to the roomy external 1 terabyte Free Agent Pro, then back over to a new 500 GB Seagate Barracuda from Newegg ($75 and it came literally the next morning). Thank goodness for spacious external drives for these sort of situations and daily backups, like these two new Seagate external drives that were specifically designed to work with and compliment Mac setups.

The FreeAgent Desk and FreeAgent Go are both handsome new additions we're excited to be offering as a giveaway today to celebrate the announcement of their availability specifically for Mac users. Go under the jump to learn how to qualify to be one of the first to win one of these new Seagate storage solutions (but don't worry Windows users, you can qualify and win a Windows-compatible equivalent also)...

Here are the specs of the newest drives from Seagate we're offering one each of:

FreeAgent Desk:

  • Available in three sizes 500 GB, 1 TB and 1.5 TB.
  • FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 interfaces (FireWire 400 supported)
  • Mac complimenting brushed metal finish
  • Mac formatted and Time Machine-ready
  • Supports Apple power-management
  • 5-year limited warranty (and from our past experience, they do honour this agreement without much hassle besides waiting for delivery; excellent coverage).

FreeAgent Go:

  • Portable form factor
  • Mac complimenting brushed metal finish
  • Connects to computers via a FreeAgent FireWire 800 desktop dock, simplifying transfers
  • Available in storage capacities of 250 GB and 320 GB
