Not really a cheap option but the sandisk cruzer flash drives also have a
penguin on the back of the box. However, they include some annoying software
that is a basically a poor implementation of the portable apps menu with few
uses and for me at least is more of a hassle. I reformatted mine right away.
Office max had the 4GB ones on sale a while back for about $40. I bet the
next time they are on sale it will be less. I added portable apps to mine
and use it all the time at work for putty, firefox and keepass. It's a great
way to keep my bookmarks and passwords with me but with some measure of
security. I still have about 3GB of space left.
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
