"The Ballistix line of high-performance memory modules features advanced speed grades, low
latencies, and integrated aluminum heat spreaders. Ballistix Tracer memory features a black
PCB, black integrated heat spreaders, and two rows of eight "chasing" red and green LEDs atop
the module, circulating at varying speeds proportional to usage. A custom-designed circuit
relays bus activity to the LEDs, allowing them to accurately reflect usage of each memory
module. In addition, eight blue ground effects LEDs emit a constant glow near the pins."

Hey you! I need to buy an external hard drive for archiving image files from Photoshop.

Where to go? I want lots of memory cheaply, but also very reliably stored. To connect to my little iBook.

I haven't looked at those in a while, so I don't have a suggestion for which one or what kind, but there are lots of parameters which tend to be in opposition to one another (like capacity vs. size and weight), so my recommendation is to write down on a sheet of paper all of the properties it needs to have (how much storage space? fit in a shirt pocket? waterproof? what height it can be safely dropped from? USB or Firewire? requires a wall plug or powered by the connected laptop? etc.) and then go window shopping. I usually buy such things online, but I'll go to big electronics stores sometimes to preview the items in person and/or see what's out there that I don't know about.
