    looks like one to me john....similar to the one i just bought from aldi for £55.

    usb powered (complete with usb dual cable), 250gig portable hard drive for laptops.

    probably just a posh marketing name for a simple hard-drive

    Yes it is. It's called a passport drive because its about the size of a passport.
    Fits in a shirt pocket.

    Amazon - change from 60 Quid

    Cheers

    Its a hard drive (2.5inch) and good value for the capacity. If anyone made a 250Gb memory stick that would be even better. Might have to wait a little while for that. They keep getting cheaper, the first one was only 4Gb and cost more!

    :Eeek: Just to put it into perspective. 25 years ago the first Hard drives were 10MB were almost as big as a small Laptop and weighed more. :Eeek:

    One of my customers of 15 years ago was just getting rid of their storage media.

    A graphics/Computer setup with the big removable magnetic platters.

    Much bigger... Size of 1/2 a dustbin:Eeek:

    Put one of THOSE in your pocket and you'd know about it.:Rofl1:
