    I would like some type of storage device to store all my school documents, some ppt/keynote presentations for a backup. Should I go with 4 GB? Still have about a year of college left. All these reviews I'm reading...I don't know which brand is best and whatnot! Have a macbook. Sorry I'm new at this.

    Something that goes in and out of the plug fairly easy, I'm disabled.

    There's not much difference between flash drives...the technology is pretty simple. And most of them are shaped about the same, so it's hard to recommend a specific one...SanDisk, Kingston, PNY...they're all fine.

    As for capacity, it's really difficult for anyone here to recommend a size. Only you know how much space you need right now and have an idea of what you expect to need in the future. Of course, it's usually better to buy more than you think you'll need just so that you don't run out of space. 4 GB can be had for a pretty good price, so that might be a good option. Of course, if you only think you're going to need 1 GB of space, even that might be overkill.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.
