Lol, I might too so I'll take 5 of 12gb... :D it has a cool design to it :P
I would be happy with a cheap 2GB... I would never use all that space anyway.
i would... :D. i usually use them to keep my files with me when i go to someone else home.
I lost their earlier Cruzer (Brushed Aluminium finish) thanks to its slim form and I had pealed off its condom cover!!
I am very optimistic to loose this one too unless I find a way to secure it to sumthing i dont ever lose like Car Keys..

It's actually kinda large for a micro flash drive. I have a 2 GB from Kensington (I think, have to check and I'm too lazy to go down and up two flights of stairs) that barely protrudes from the USB socket. It comes with a cute little slipcase which attaches to it and provides something to pull it out of the socket with. Picture if I remember when I'm in a picture-taking mood.

I have a hard enough time keeping track of sunglasses much less something this size!
I find whatever I have lying around to transfer, 2GB micro sd or extra hard drives, and they are cheaper than running out for something new every few months.
Still...pretty neat if the price is right.
I at one point had like 5 or so thumb drives... and I wasn't using any of them... so I started giving them away lol
The one I have now is a little 8GB sandisk that slides in and out.
I use it about once a month lol
I use a 16GB drive to shuttle diagnostic, scan and repair files around. I try to be methodical about handling it and keeping track of it. It has it's own place at home and I check for it to be there. I've only had to replace it twice,....sigh!
I also keep a 16GB flash drive in each PC to use for 'ReadyBoost' purposes. I really don't know just how much good that they're doing though, someone told me once that with each system sporting 8GB of RAM, ReadyBoost is not effective. Also, since I put the SSD in the i5-750, it disabled ReadyBoost on it's own, saying it's not needed..
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Yea... from everything i've heard.... ready boost pretty much does NOTHING lol
Adding a flash drive I would think would create a bottle neck lol
Even HDDs are faster than flash drives.
@realneil: You can step down to a 4 GB flash drive for Ready Boost; it doesn't actually use anything beyond that, and those 4's are a whole lot cheaper than a 16. And I've haerd conflicting reports about its effectiveness; but, since I spent $10 on one, I figure it's a good just-in-case sort of addition. I do know that it only uses the Ready Boost drive if the OS calculates that there would be a speed improvement and not a degradation-- so at worst it's merely unnecessary, at best it may improve mechanical HD performance.
My 32 GB flash drive is the perfect size to back up important World of Warcraft and my own work files, so I do that when I remember to. If the price of a 64 GB comes down low enough I'll mirror the OS disk onto that every week. In the meantime, backing up to a mechanical drive mostly works, despite Windows 7's warnings that I don't have permission to back up certain files. (I've written to Steve Ballmer and asked for permission.)
