Why Magnesium?
  • Solid: Magnesium has the best strength-to-weight ratio of any of the commonly used structural metals, has excellent dimensional stability and is highly impact and dent resistant
  • Lightweight: Magnesium is the lightest of all the commonly used metals (50 to 60% lighter than aluminum)
  • Cool: Magnesium has the same characteristics as aluminum - it keeps an enclosure cool, dissipates the heat - no noisy cooling fan required!
  • Green: Magnesium is an earthly matter. It is produced from sea water, brines, and magnesium-bearing minerals, which offer unlimited reserves
It's a Mac Match

Encased in an ultra-lightweight and strong magnesium enclosure, the Mg is a 100 percent match for any Apple MacBook - perfect for style-conscious Mac users - and at just 7mm is also an extremely thin mobile hard drive
Magnificent Magnesium

      I have had great experiences with Freecom HDDs before and this is why I will continue buying their products. I have only had this model for a few weeks and so far so good, but only time will tell! Great German quality all round!
