Licensed PC hardware tends to come in the form of things that are frequently seen: mice, keyboards, maybe a laptop or desktop enclosure every now and then. But if your love for Star Wars runs so deep that you want themed components that you’ll only see connected to your motherboard, Seagate has a collection of drives just for you. The new Beskar Ingot FireCuda collection looks like hunks of Beskar steel, sought after by the galaxy’s most ruthless bounty hunters.
The 500GB and 1TB M.2 drives retail for $160 and $260, respectively, which is $10 more than their retail price (and quite a bit more than the street price, as flash storage is surprisingly cheap at the moment). SATA SSDs are available in 1TB and 2TB, while the external hard drive comes in 2TB only. They have similar premiums over their non-licensed counterparts.
But can you put a price on indulging your Star Wars fandom in digital storage form? Yes. The price is $10.
