The mLogic – “The First Zero-Footprint Hard Drive for iMac” is the first one in our list.
mLogic’s mBack looks like an ordinary external hard drive at a first sight – in fact, it could be used as one, except that it would look a bit weird. The reason why is that it’s aimed specifically at iMac and Apple display users who want more storage space but have already maxed out the internal drive and don’t want to clutter their desks with more devices.
The mBack is designed to attach to the back of the iMac in order to be invisible for the user. The enclosure has a simple but strong mount that also fits the drive’s own USB 3.0 cable (which also provides the power) and lets the computer’s power cable pass through – which makes for a very clean installation. The drive is available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacity, so you can get quite a lot of extra storage without clutter and without breaking the bank.
