I scored some small older notebook that only has usb 2, using a HDD is not an option as the dam thing uses 1.8" hdd.

I like the idea of boot ubuntu off USB drives, and I've tried them with USB 3 drives (nice but the dam unit is too big and stick out too much).

I was wondering if anyone found some fast USB 2 drive that's small (like a micro USB drive or mini one)....

I have a few USB drives on me but none of them really get the 2 condition of being fast and small, the small one is slow, and the big one is fast .
