	do you mean what i know as "thumb drives"?  stick-like thing
	you just plug in?  i've never used these and am unfamiliar.  
	one reason i want an optical drive is for when i watch a
	movie/dvd/cd on my tiny notebook.  --yes, this will be a clear
	indication that i've gone completely 'round the bend.  another
	reason for using the optical drive might be to save things
	from the notebook if everything else is down...

	altho raison d'etre [dont laugh at my spelling, please] for
	wanting such a small computer is to use it as a speech device,
	i might like it well enough to carry-with in general.  rather
	than lugging my 700-pound thinkpad.  thus, expendability is a
	consideration.  weeks/months ago i saw a 4-unit (almost
	cube-like) device that held 256GB of RAM. plug all 4 into your
	ASUS and you have a nice round terabyte of SSD.  there were
	links to new [and open] filesystems for the computer.

	the mouse with the ASUS was infrared; cordless!  so, on one
	hand, some of these tiny computers seem more advanced than others. 
	OTOH, I can imagine one huge factory somewhere churning out
	these thing by the million/day....
