USB Drive (Lexar 2GB Jumpdrive) or Do I go for U3 Technology?

Looking for advice here. I'm thinking about getting a USB drive. I'm looking at the Lexar 2GB Jumpdrive, which seems like a nice size, and supposedly comes with good sync software. Or maybe a PNY 4 GB drive, which is just slightly more expensive, but no syncing software. But then I thought, hmmmm, maybe I should be getting into the new U3 software/hardware? (see http://www.u3.com/ for more info if you've never heard of it.)

Anyway, any advice on any of these three options would be much appreciated. This sort of a lark for me, since I have a laptop, but I thought it would be smart to have my critical stuff on a usb drive, for the next time my motherboard goes, or if I want to travel without bringing the laptop.

Thanks :)

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
