Iomega intros Mini USB Drive

Storage peripheral maker Iomega Corp. is the latest company to throw its hat in the ring with USB flash storage hardware. The company today announced its Mini USB Drive in 64 and 128MB capacities.

The key-sized drive works with Macs and PCs. The user simply uncaps the terminal end and attaches it to an available USB port on the computer; the Mini USB Drive can transfer data at up to 1MB per second, according to Iomega. Iomega ships the USB Drive with software pre-installed.

The Mini USB Drive sports a sliding key ring design that moves between the drive body and the cap, according to your own preference. You can keep the key ring with the drive when traveling and then detach the key ring from the drive when it's connected to a computer.

The Mini USB Drive is coming to stores in the U.S. by November 18, 2002. The 64MB model will cost US$69.95 and the 128MB variation will cost $99.95. Worldwide availability is expected in January 2003. Iomega also plans to release a 256MB version in the U.S. during the first quarter of 2003.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
