Actually i have many different sizes/os’s for testing.
The one i am using is the one came with the device (xp tablet)
1g free with that..


JKK, what operating system did you install on the 6 GB flash drive? And how much free space do you have left over?


Hello boys,

Just to correct some things about flash drives..
Flash is SUPER durable compared to normal hd and they DO NOT need power to keep information.

I swapped my amtek umpc hd to 6g flash and gain severall goog things:
-battery life is 10-20% better
-it runs really cool
-it is lighter
-in theory its faster but for me they feel the same..

For most, the issues with flash are capasity and price, but i don’t need that capacity so …

I normally use my umpc to surf etc. and when i use it for work, i connect to my work server with citrix. On the server i can use Office, outlook and all the other softwares i need, without installing them to my umpc…
