Father’s Day Guide: The On-The-Go Dad

Friday, June 7th, 2013 | Author:

Father’s Day is tough. Gift ideas are not easy to come by … and let’s face it, dad isn’t much help. So this year we’ve decided to go all out for dad’s big day. In this series leading up to June 16, we’ll give great gift ideas for all types of dads.

He travels for business. He travels for vacation. He travels with the family to Walley World Disney World (Clark Griswold would agree, this doesn’t count as vacation for most dads).

Whatever his reasons, the on-the-go dad is always on the move. And if he’s often away from home, odds are that he’s probably taking his laptop packed with critical data and his great new photos.

But as countless dads have learned the hard way: the more trips you take, the more chances there are for your computer to trip-up. This is why it’s critical to always keep a durable backup drive available when on the road.

Stylishly engineered, the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro is the perfect external solution for protecting the on-the-go dad’s data during his travels (it is in the name after all.) The On-The-Go Pro comes in a sleek, acrylic enclosure and it’s bus-powered, so no AC adapter is needed. It’s also durable and at 3.5″x 5.5″x 1″, it’s compact enough to fit in any bag or even his finest vacation fanny pack.

Does dad already have a spare 2.5″ drive? The Mercury On-The-Go “add your own drive” kit enclosure makes a convenient gift. Or you can give his computer a major speed boost with an OWC SSD, while turning his current drive into an external. You can also maximize his capacity with a 1.5TB model 5400RPM hard drive that will hold all 1.5 million of the photos he took during his trip.

Whichever route you go, the On-The-Go Pro will take care of dad’s most crucial work or personal data during his travels. And trust us, he will appreciate practicality.
