Today, I went to The Mall with friends after our exams.

I am kind of surprise to saw a relatively 'small' computer fair held there, haha.

There's only 3 booth there, probably all from the same company.

The only noticible brand is NEC, which is most probably from the ComSoft company in Gadong.

However, I saw some real cool hard drives there, under a pretty new brand called LaCie.

The hard drives available there really make me 'WOW' out loud and felt so excited and wanted to buy 'em.

Here's some of the highlight in the 'fair':

LaCie Brink Hard Drives:

First thing to catch my attention is the brilliant LaCie Brink Hard Drives. It is inspired by Lego and it works similar. You may stack up the 'bricks' of hard drives as you like, as long as you can afford to own more than one, hehe. The price is close to those of the normal portable hard drives tho.

Description from LaCie website:

Crafted by the world-famous designer Ora-Ïto, the new Brick expresses a playfulness in a user-friendly high-performance hard drive. Stack & Play multiple LaCie Bricks together to brighten your desktop and your mood (they’re even stackable with LaCie Mobile Bricks). With Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface, it offers the fast data transfer rates required for substantial jobs like downloading digital photos, saving MP3s or transferring home videos from a camcorder. Available desktop models are: 160GB (white), 250GB (red), 300GB (blue) and 500GB (red).

2.5" 80GB B$249
2.5" 120GB B$395
3.5" 160GB B$245
3.5" 250GB B$295
3.5" 300GB B$345

LaCie Skwarim:

Next let us go to the ultra-compact LaCie Skwarim. It's not as cool as the brick series, but it's relatively smaller. It's roughly the size of our palm, square, and roughly 1 cm in term of thinkness. Cool huh? The design is so-so only, but the size and portability is superb, thumbs up to Lacie!

Description from LaCie website:

righten your computing world with the lively colors and high fashion look of the LaCie Skwarim. The original creation of award-winning designer Karim Rashid, its futuristic design is complemented by the feel of its compact, soft-touch square case.

Just plug the Skwarim into your PC or Mac laptop or desktop to back up and exchange files, then toss it into your pocket and bring it with you everywhere.

LaCie SAFE Mobile Hard Drive:

This is most likely the product for business man who need to take many business informations with you. This mobile hard disk comes with a fingerprint access control which is pretty cool, 'geeky' and rare in Brunei, hehe. I love it, neglecting it's not-so-cool design, haha.

Description from Lacie website:

This level of security is ideal for parental control at home, protecting confidential professional information at work and keeping your files safeguarded on the road.

LaCie Rugged All-Terrain Hard Drive:

This is probably the custom made product for me? Haha, hell man, this is exactly what I need! A portable hard drive which can afford to suffer my 'rough' life! Hehe. This portable hard drive is completed with shock-resistance rubber bumper all around it and scratch-protected aluminum shell. Cool man~ *drooling~*

Oh ya, in the end of the leaflet I had here with me while typing all these, I saw the company name which is distributing LaCie products, hehe, they're not ComSoft lo.
