Here's a few super cute (or super manly, if you like) harddrives coming out from the fine folks at Verbatim. They are the Acclaim, the Wallet Drive, the Store ‘n’ Go® SuperSpeed USB 3.0 compact portable hard drive, and the TUFF-‘N’-TINY™ USB flash drive. The Acclaim is palm sized, sleek, aesthetically nice, and features USB Turbo Speed for super-fast data transfer. Pre loaded with backup software for file, folder, and complete backup and recovery, comes in 320 and 500GB for their Fire Engine Red and Electric Blue versions. For their Piano Black finish version, they offer 320, 500, 640GB and 1TB. From there, they just keep getting smaller.

The Wallet Drive looks just like that, a tiny little wallet. Thin and portable, high-end style with a leather enclosure, Turbo USB software, and Nero BackItUp and Burn software with full system backup and restore. Then there's the Store ‘n’ Go® SuperSpeed USB 3.0 compact portable hard drive. These are compact portable harddrives, available in 500GB, 750GB and 1TB sizes, fastest USB connectivity with USB 3.0 bus-power that's backwardly compatible with USB 2.0 and comes in piano black. This includes Verbatim's 7-year limited warranty, as well as a free trial of Norton Online Backup (5GB) (the Acclaim also features this free trial.)

Then there's the super-cute Store ‘n’ Go Clip-it USB drive. It's a super lightweight paperclip-like device that holds your digital files in a really excellent clip-on USB. It's available in 4GB size and comes in five colors: pink, green, blue, orange, and black. Designed by "award-winning Berlin-based product/industrial designer Arman Emami" and earner of a Red Dot Design Award in 2010. The Store 'n' Go Clip-it UDB drive is MSRP: $19.99 and will be available at the beginning of December 2010 (just in time for you-know-what.)

Then there's the tough and tiny line of TUFF-‘N’-TINY™ USB flash drives, reportedly the smallest USB flash drives in the world. Penny-thin and travel tough, they say, super cute and due to System in Package, resistant to dust, water, and static, all this while leaving the connectors visible. Compatible with all USB ports, password security for Windows users "and is enhanced for Windows® ReadyBoost™ for Windows 7 and Vista users." Comes with a key ring lanyard for attachment to mobile phones or keyrings. Available in 2, 4, 8, 16 and an incredible 32GB. See the full press release below.
