Although "one-touch" backup hard drives are becoming all the rage for paranoid parents and data pack-rats who just can't afford to lose a single byte, Rimax is hitting us with a sleek backup drive that also sports a three-port USB hub. The HD Slim features a black aluminum casing, USB 2.0 and external SATA connections, single-button backup functionality, 250GB or 320GB capacities, and PC Clone software for automated backup scheduling. Additionally, the firm throws in all the connectors you'd need to get 'er up and running, and the front-mounted trio of USB 2.0 ports -- while not exactly as impressive as 16 -- provides a welcome hub for three of your most favorite USB-powered devices. Available immediately, the 320GB rendition will run you £139.99 ($275), while the quarter-gigabyte variety demands a slightly lower £119.99 ($236).
