16GB ExpressCard drive
Although flash drives are nearly ubiquitous for USB, Transcend has taken the unusual step of producing new drives for ExpressCard/34 slots, such as those used on the Apple MacBook Pro. Capacities include 2, 4, 8 and 16GB, and in addition to ExpressCard machines, a USB 2.0 adapter allows connection to desktop computers or simply laptops without an ExpressCard slot. On Windows Vista systems the drives will be compatible with Microsoft's ReadyBoost memory expansion technique. Although the cards are formally announced, Transcend has yet to disclose costs or release dates.
