Lacie Hard Drive

In 1984 Apple Introduced the Macintosh (Mac) personal computer that along with Microsoft, changed the way we live and work forever. While the Windows-based PCs are more popular. Apple Mac computers are considered the elite brand for professionals everywhere particularly those involved in photography, videography, and audio technology all of which require powerful computers.

That same year Simply Computing opened its doors to Canadian customers with a stated purpose to sell and service the new Mac computer. Thirty-four years later it has grown to become the largest Apple independent retailer in Canada with seven retail stores and a slew of Express stores across the country.

By 1992 the increasing need for storage was realized by Seagate Technology, and they created their brand of data storage products under the brand name LaCie. LaCie products include multimedia hard drives and storage products for mobile, wireless, desktop and network storage. Simply Computing is a re-seller of LaCie products such as LaCie hard drive that complement their main line of Apple Products.

Let us look a bit closer at some of the LaCie products available at Simply Computing. First is LaCie hard drive. Porsche Designs partnered with LaCie in 2003 to produce external hard drives that have the LaCie technology on the inside with the “exclusive and timeless shape” created by Porsche Designs. The LaCie 1TB Porsche USB 3.0 Mobile Hard Drive allows you to transfer a 700MB video file in less than 10 seconds. It was specifically designed for Mac computers and is protected by a 3 mm aluminum casing. The LaCie 8GB Porsche Design Desktop Drive will give a whopping 8 TB of storage capacity and a super quick 3.0 USB connection.

Next is LaCie’s Rugged Mobile Storage – Just like the name indicates the LaCie Rugged line of mobile storage products are water resistant, drop resistant, shock resistant and have hardware encryption to protect that precious data. The LaCie RuggedKey USB 3.0 is an interesting data storage option. With a rubber exterior, it will withstand a drop of 100 meters compared to the 2-meter drop resistance of the aluminum clad Rugged models. It will survive hot and cold temperature extremes and is resistant to water and dust.

Simply Computing is More than Apple

Simply Computing has other non-Apple products including JVC headphones, Kantu Speakers, Beats headphones and earphones and other branded items. They offer a generous return policy with no restocking fee if returned in 30 days in a saleable condition. They also will match any competitors price if the other price is not a “Black Friday Special” or from a fire sale for up to 14 days after the original purchase.

If you need an extended warranty on your new or pre-owned Mac, Simply Computing can offer SimplyGuard or AppleCare for up to 36 months extended coverage. And don’t worry if you’re a little low on cash because Simply Computing can help you with two different plans for the individual and a third plan aimed at the business owners looking to purchase multiple computers and accessories.
