Here’s a reality check for you: Drives are shrinking even more. That 8GB Super Talent flash memory drive in the picture above is the smallest one in the world; it's barely an inch long. It’s easy on your pocketbook, too, a steal at $35.
Posing above is the pricey Buffalo palm-sized LinkStation Mini hard disk ($699, available May), network-attached storage (NAS) holding a mind-boggling terabyte (TB) of your favorite data. It has two tiny notebook 2.5-inch drives shoehorned inside, giving you your choice of redundancy using RAID 1, or super speed with RAID 0.
