Look And Feel Like A Laptop Expert With A USB Flash Drive
Gone are the days of floppy discs. The world is being taken in by the USB flash drive.
One of the most versatile and useful inventions for laptops has been the introduction of the USB port. This port can hold a number of different accessories.
From cooling fans to air fresheners to desk lights. The USB port can handle almost anything.
But one of the really useful and common things that it holds is the flash drive. This very small accessory that fits comfortably in your pocket can hold much more than a disk. Some of them can even hold more than a CD.
One of the best things about the USB flash drive is how easy they are to use... You simply plug it into your laptop.A folder will pop up.You drag and drop the files that you want on your flash drive into the folder.
It's that easy
Flash drives are really handy when you don't want some of the junk on your laptop. I personally like to put a lot of my music files and ebooks onto my flash drive.
There are some nice benefits to having less files on your hard drive. Your laptop runs faster and doesn't get clogged down.
Also, if there is too much on your hard drive you won't be able to use the laptop hibernate feature that saves you lots of time when you turn your computer on and off.
One nice thing about having lots of files on a USB flash drive is that it is much easier to move things from one computer to another.
A flash drive is a really easy way to move things from your desktop to your laptop
If you work with a desktop and a laptop then you will probably really enjoy the ease and convenience of a flash drive. You can very easily take the files that you have been working on at work or school and bring them back to your computer at home.
Flash drives are becoming a must for college students. Students giving a PowerPoint presentation usually bring in their presentation on a flash drive.
Also many English teachers ask their students to turn in their flash drives that contain all of their papers.
So where do I get a good and cheap USB Flash Drive?
If you are looking for the cheapest place, you can find some great deals on flash drives at eBay.
Pay particular attention to how much storage the flash drive stores. Common sizes are 256MB, 512MB, and 1GB of storage. Obviously the more storage the better. I personally have a 1GB flash drive because I have a lot of files.
If you prefer to buy from a store then I suggest buying from Tiger Direct They have some great deals on a wide variety flash drives. They also have great deals on many other laptop accessories as well.
