Sick of all hard drives looking like a solid block, designer Ora-Ïto came up with this fancy golden hard drive for La Cie. The very unique hard disk drive has 500 GB of space, and actually has a bit of real gold in it. Cheap at $200, and it still features all the good applications from La Cie.

As computers and laptops grow increasingly stylish, it's only natural to see companies striving to make external apparatus just as attractive. This is a trend that will only gain momentum in the years to come.
