First, congrats to Carey from Baton Rouge for winning the Altec Lansing inMotion Air in last week's giveaway. For this week we move into the storage arena, and we've got a really nice, supersvelte external drive courtesy of Seagate: the 320GB FreeAgent GoFlex Slim.
The Seagate GoFlex Slim external hard drive is fast, compact, sturdy, flexible, and relatively affordable. The drive supports USB 3.0 and includes software that enables both Macs and PCs to have full access to it without the need to change the drive's file system. ...By being significantly thinner, the GoFlex Slim further enhances Seagate's GoFlex portable drive family. In fact, the drive would earn our Editors' Choice Award if it came in higher capacities.
Normally, the Seagate GoFlex Slim would cost you about $100, but we're giving it away gratis. So, how do you try to win it? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.

- If you are chosen, you will be notified via e-mail. The winner must respond within three days of the end of the contest. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.
