PC - as in a non-Mac-owning mom.
Although politically correct moms might like this gift too...
ATTN: PC moms!
If you're not worried about backing up your computer...you should be.
Especially if you store your "memories" (aka: pictures, movies, slideshows, etc.) or your "talents" (aka: that draft of your children's book, the first chapter of your novel, your birth story, etc.) there.
For many moms, though, I know that the term "back-up" is downright frightening. It sounds exceedingly complex. Just hearing the term makes you want to ask your husband or your nearest tech-savvy buddy to come read this post.
But wait! Seagate just introduced a product TODAY that is designed with you in mind.
The Seagate Replica is "an easy-to-use back up appliance that allows consumers to effortlessly execute a complete PC backup (including pictures, music, movies, operating system, programs and settings) - not just individual files and folders."
Essentially, you just plug in Replica ONCE, hit "ok" on the initial install (never again thereafter) and forget about it!
Check out this description from Seagate: "Unlike other complex blackup methods, Replica completely eliminates the need to manually learn, manage, and dedicate time to the backup process...Gone are the days of burning stacks of discs or saving only a few files on flash drives. With Replica, consumers have the comfort of knowing that they are prepared in the event of a data disaster - even a PC crash..."
There are two versions of the product available for purchase:
The multi-PC version of Seagate Replica includes a dock and is available for homes with two or more PCs (Suggested Retail Price: $199.99). The single-PC version is recommended for use with individual laptop or desktop computers (Suggested Retail Price: $129.99).
The Replica will be available in May exclusively through QVC. Additional online and retail outlets will be added thereafter and interested parties can check Seagate.com/Replica for more details.
YOUR TURN: Do you own a PC or a Mac? I'm a Mac Girl myself, but "to each his own..."
WIN IT! There will be two winners. Each winner will receive the Single-PC version of the Seagate Replica ($129.99).
