Designed for usability, the LaCie Core7 positions one USB port on top for USB flash drives or quick-and-easy port access. An additional five ports are conveniently disguised beneath the product platform to accommodate more peripherals. The LaCie Core7 also includes channels to keep cables organized for an aesthetic looking desktop. Similarly, the Core7 includes a built-in standard USB cable for conveniently connecting to a PC or Mac. To power the Core7, it includes a power supply.
