    Yeah, slightly too much to spend on something which I'm meant to carry round in what is bound to be an unsecured manner.

    Still, nice idea though. Wonder if they will make a "tough" version?

    Seems like a good idea but those prices are way inflated over even top spec SSDs.

    I hope these can be booted off so you could carry your installation of Windows around with you and use it on any USB3 PC or laptop wherever you are. May be useful in a few years time when USB3 is everywhere.

    What a waste of money. Yeah, it's nice, but I don't see how you can justify that price for a device that will nearly always be used for just carrying aroung data. Understandable paying huge prices for SATA 3 SSD's which most people are going to use as a primary disk to install the OS on, but for just carrying data what's the point?

    And what a nice OS it would be, having drivers installed in it for 200 different pieces of hardware...

    The 64gb one is too small, the others are too expensive. No thanks
