Imation Atom Flash
Imation is pushing the size of its flash drives downwards today with the Atom Flash, its smallest ever storage of the kind. The drive is only slightly longer than a paperclip and is small enough to be tied to another mobile device or a set of keys without being a burden. The Atom is also considered relatively advanced with an aluminum outer shell, a password protection feature, and recognition as a ReadyBoost memory cache for Windows Vista users who would rather use it as a supplement to a PC with little memory.
The Atom works with virtually any computer that supports USB-based storage and ships in capacities of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB. Itvaries in price from $18 for the starter model to $100 for the top version. Every storage level should be available today.
