[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. Designed specifically to work with Android and Apple’s iOS devices, it’s really for heavy media users, who want to haul big files with them. There’s a swiftish USB 3.0 connection to load it up to start with. Seagate Wireless Plus Portable Drive: about €200, seagate.com
