No doubt about it; Everexs gBook computer is a hackers dream PC.

USB FLASH MEMORY
Great For: People with two or more unnetworked computers, or those who ferry files from home to work.
Think Twice If: Your files come from digital devices that require a specific type of memory card.
What to Buy: Sony Microvault ($49 for 16MB to $299 for 128MB), IBM Memory Key ($89 for 32MB), Agat Q ($69 for 16MB to $199 for 64MB).
PERSONAL HARD DRIVES
Great For: Data hogs (think 40GB), such as those who want to carry around their collection of MP3s.
