    I was searching the forum for some recommendations on a good USB thumbdrive for the Macbook, and everything seems to be a bit old.

    I'm looking for a device that is fast, and I am looking for one that does not block the other USB port while inserted.

    What is everyone using out there?

    Yeah, I use an Attache too. But mine's older, and it's 512MB. Looks like this:

    Anyway, it works well with a Mac and it's fast as far as I can tell.

    So these PNY's don't block the other USB port? It look as though they might...

    Mine doesn't. On my iBook, I have a Logitech mouse plugged in next to the Attache and they aren't touching.

    For my small docs (Word docs, a song or two, images etc.) I use a little Imation 512MB flash drive I got for Christmas.

    It's amazingly easy to use and it has never been anything but useful.

    For bigger stuff I have a 120gig external drive but that's MOSTLY stationary.

    Also check out the SanDisk Cruzer Micro if space is at a premium; these are not much wider than the USB port itself!
