Though the metal maybe reason enough to relieve you of your bills, S.T. Dupont has also gone the great length of fashioning the flash drive's surface with its trademark diamond-head pattern. If that shall not convince you to blow your pocket money, perhaps the choice of three colours; turquoise, pink and black shall have you queuing up? No? We didn't think so. [Slashgear].

DISCUSSION

Sure, it looks very nice. But for $700, you'd think they'd be able to do a little better than 2GB. Would it have killed them to double the capacity to at least 4GB? Especially since this is probably an item that people will keep for a really long time (assuming they don't misplace it).
