    What kind of flash drive should I use to plug into my MacBook Pro to save documents I am writing on my MS Word program? Would just about any of them work or do I need something special?

    Any will do. Just don't bother installing any software that may come with it.

    Nothing special needed. Just get a good sized one. You'll never be sorry for having a large capacity one.

    Suggestions:

    BEFORE you use any flashdrive, re-initialize it to "Mac format" (HFS+ with journaling enabled).
    Things just go better that way.

    BE AWARE that HFS+ drives cannot be read by PC's (unless they are running special software).

    If you need to move files between the Mac and PC's, use a SECOND flashdrive, formatted for the PC.
