If you have the desire, now you can unclutter your bookshelf and enter the 21st century by recycling your yellow-outlined National Geographic magazines. In their place, get your hands on the magazine’s entire library of issues via a special NG hard drive. Dating back to 1888, the hard drive has every issue through 2008, including advertisements, photos, maps and stories.

National Geographic hard drive

Though the pricey archival set comes on a 160-gigabyte hard drive, 100GB of it is empty, allowing you to add your own files. The package contains a DVD with tips from and interviews with National Geographic photographers as well as a look at how the magazine is put together.

The 3×5-inch hard drive will work on Mac and PC computers and connects via a USB port. It’s available for $200.
