Fourinone VMultra bundles USB hub, DVD drive, SD slot and 500GB, promises to be ultimate laptop peripheral

While Velocity Micro announced the VMultra earlier this year at CES, it’s only now ready for primetime. The VMultra combines a USB hub, an SD card slot, a DVD±RW drive and 500GB of storage into a surprisingly slim package that connects to any computer via USB 3.0. If you like, you can even fit your own 2.5-inch hard drive in the SATA III bay. You’ll have to take out the included 500GB HDD first of course.

For those who prefer desktops, Velocity Micro also announced a $599 holiday edition of its Vector PC that runs on a dual-core AMD A6-5400k processor and 8GB of DDR3 RAM in the same press release, which you can peek at after the break.
