    Seagate's Replica external hard drive is designed for set-and-forget backups from two computers. The process is entirely automatic; simply plug it in and the hard drive will find your files and copy them for safe-keeping.

If you want to take your memories with you wherever you go, you can pick this drive up for $80 off its $379 RRP from [[xref:http://www.dse.com.au/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/4b282db1031360b22741c0a87e010660/Product/View/XH1196|DickSmith]] or [[xref:http://www.officeworks.com.au/retail/products/Technology/Data-Storage-and-Recordable-Media/Hard-Drives/Pocket-Hard-Drives/WDBM1000BK|Officeworks]].

  • 4GB flash drive



    Price: $9.99 to $15

    USB flash drives get lost easier than a kid at Disneyland. That makes them great stocking stuffers this Christmas, especially at current prices. A 4GB flash drive provides enough storage to store all your school or office work, along with a few hundred photos and even enough albums to listen to through the holidays. The cheapest we found is from Sydney-based computer store [[xref:http://www.iibuy.com.au/index.php?main_page=product_free_shipping_info&products_id=15789|iiBuy]] for $9.99, but you can also pick up a couple of Soniq flash drives from [[xref:http://www.jbhifionline.com.au/computers-laptops/computer-accessories/soniq-4gb-usb-flash-pen-drv/290038?utm_source=JB-AU&utm_medium=button&utm_content=http://www.jbhifi.com.au/images/buttons/buy/JB-AU-V2-Buy-Online-79x17.png&utm_campaign=detail-button|JB Hi-Fi]] for $15 each.
  • [[Artnid:212726|LaCie Hard Disk Design by Neil Poulton (1TB)]]



    Price: $129 (Save $420)

    Officeworks seems to be clearing out some of its old stock at the moment, and the savings are massive. There are savings on previous generation external hard drives from Western Digital like the [[Artnid:273614|500GB My Passport for Mac]], or the 250GB [[Artnid:269006|FreeAgent Go]] from Seagate. However, our favourite deal is on LaCie's stylish 1TB external hard drive, designed by Neil Poulton. You can grab what used to be a $549 hard drive for [[xref:http://www.officeworks.com.au/retail/products/Technology/Data-Storage-and-Recordable-Media/Hard-Drives/External-Hard-Drives/LA301304A|just $129]]. As with any clearance special, phone ahead to ensure stock is available at your local Officeworks store.
