[INDEX_BOLD]Seagate Wireless Plus Portable Drive [/INDEX_BOLD]As someone who ditched his hefty, ageing Mac Powerbook for a tablet, I know it’s only practical for work if you use the cloud and depend on wifi to hook up. Here’s a travel-friendly alternative: Seagate’s 1TB Wireless Plus Hard Drive. It makes its own wifi network, no router needed, and up to eight users can join.
