Diving further into the Windows ReadyBoost market, Toshiba is planning a new line of its TransMemory USB flash drives. The line, called U2K, will consist of 1GB-8GB models due out in October and a massive limited edition (which probably means producing them is so expensive that they need to test the market with a small initial batch) 32GB model that should drop in December. What would you do with an extra 32 gigs of system memory? Putting your plans into action will cost you a small bundle this winter: $200 for the 8GB model or a whopping $665 for the 32GB version.

@EQC: 1) ReadyBoost can be used with virtually ANY flash device, including almost all usb thumb drives. So, there is nothing special about these.
This is not true, for a drive to be readyboost capable it has to have a fast enough read/write speed. Many flash drives are not quick enough. I know first hand, I work in a computer lab, and many students have tried different drives on our Vista systems, some work, most do not. But you do not have to have a Readyboost Certified drive to use Readyboost. I have found the major companies are fast enough, if you go with a noname brand you usually have problems.
