    Oh about time they did something with the cap end (although the chain in that pic don't look long enough to reach the end? )

    Surprising how easy it is to fill a USB drive these days!

    It really doesn't

    It might just be the picture but that seems fairly long compared to the standard 4/8gb voyager. I can't be bothered to dig out the dimensions for that though.

    13.2cm is very long. That's longer than a 120mm fan (as reference)

    EDIT: Perhaps 1.32cm is the depth? 9cm down is about right, as is 2 across.

    In theory it should be the same length, but it does look a bit longer.

    Erm, I don't think those dimensions can be right or at least if they are then the picture certainly isn't. 13.2 by 9.x cm is huge!!!

    Agent, the cap fingymabob clips off the chain when you need to attach it to the top.

    The dimensions don't seem right, though. I've removed them and pinged Corsair to ask if they can confirm.

    omg if you can boot from these, then you could carry your own pc around with you. Just plug it in to a dummy/ client pc boot up with your OS and off you go. Imagine walking in to an internet cafe and plugging your own flash drive in to their hardware so it would be like browsing from home.

    Altho M$ would want to revalidate every time you plugged it in to a different pc

    Plus drivers would be an issue.

    Windows doesn't like booting on another motherboard/chipset to what it was installed on at the best of times.

    £150 is pretty cheap!

    Remember 9 months ago 32GB was released and i believe it had hit nearly that. Now it's available for well under £100. It'll drop soon enough!

    And it's probably moddable into an EEEPc anyway

    I have a 2Gb USB drive with linux that I use for that purpose. It 'just works' on more or less any PC, and unlike windows it has no problem with differing hardware. In practice I don't use it that often as I usualy have access to more normal PCs, but it is still good to have on my keyring just in case.

    Head over to PenDriveLinux.com for instructions.

    Article has been updated with correct dimensions. Stoo, the read and write speeds have been added too:
    ...measures just 100mm x 25.6mm x 14.8mm, and provides read and write speeds of 24MB/s and 10MB/s, respectively.
