U3 unveiled the industry’s first USB smart drives from big name manufacturers like Kingston, Memorex, SanDisk, and Verbatim. But what is a USB smart drive you ask?

Well it may change your notion of portability. It may be the death of the laptop.

Okay well probably not. But it’s damn cool. A smart drive allows you to takes your applications and settings to go alongside your documents. Effectively, all you have to do is plug in your USB smart drive and it’s as if you logged into your home computer.

You’re taking your hard drive to go. On your keychain.

Commuters will no longer have to lug around a laptop to and from work. Their personal settings will all be on their keys. Sure the laptop may have to come along on business trips so you don’t have to count on a computer being at your destination, but I know with this tech, I’d leave my laptop at home.
