I'm about to buy a 12" AlPB, but want to make sure that I can read/write floppys that can be shared with Wintel machines, as I often have to work overseas without access to internet or even a LAN and need to have an ability to rapidly share files with collegues working off of Wintel notebooks. I saw on the Apple website that you can buy a 3rd party portable drive for $49.99, which is great, I don't mind the expense. I just need to know that it will READ and WRITE to a format Wintel notebooks can also read. And I couldn't find any info to confirm this online. Thanks.
