You'd waste it on Readyboost?? Why would you buy this expensive USB SSD just to leave it always plugged in, doing something that only speeds a computer up by a tiny amount? Much better to buy a normal SATA SSD and install your OS and programs on it. Then you get a massive performance increase instead of an occasional marginal boost. Save this for real work.

No, add more RAM so you don't need ReadyBoost (plus it way faster). Then use this drive for what it was intended, high speed porn transfer.

ChromeOS or Puppy Linux that works sometimes, or Windows 7 on it & the HDD for data??? I wasted my HDD when I upgraded with an SSD, but I don't have USB 3.0

Vote me down, thats ok. The source of this article was "Geeky Gadgets", their source was "Everything USB", and their source was "Anandtech", who got their information from Computex a month ago.

I suppose it would be too much to create an article based on the press release though.

how much would install of windows 7, linux, osx (just an example) and what ever other oses would be nice to have take up? and assume that you are going to have 1 year of updates for each.

this would be a great key to have, rendering the computer more or less when its not with it (normal people, like family) and not having it tied to an internal part is even nice.

This would be ideal if the transfer rates are legit to make your machine truely portable, imagine the idea of having your OS and programs all installed on the drive and you just plug into whatever dumb machine you are at and booting from the flash drive.

I already did this with USB2.0 but the speed was awful, this would make thing a lot snappier.

only works with linux distros that are built to be usable on any configuration, but that would be awesome

now, what if instead of usb, we get a universal sand forceadapter... than we just plug the memory into the computer, take the cost of the controller out of the equation.
