Star Wars USB Drives

Also called flash drives, jump drives, and thumb drives, these USB devices are a wonderful portable way to back up your computer files. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you already know that jump drives are far more reliable than floppy disks, and they store a heckuva lot more. Prices have been coming down ever since they were invented, and it's easy to find a lot of gigs for your buck.

For today's "Friday luxury item," the prices certainly reflect that you're paying for the characters in addition to the hardware, but they are adorable, and perfect for the Star Wars fan in your life. And they're also useful, coming in 1, 2, 4, or 8 gig options. Pictured above are Princess Leia and C-3PO; there are other Star Wars characters available, as well as a large variety of other "designer" drives.

What: Star Wars USB Drives
Where: Mimobot Designer USB Flash Drives
How much (as of today's post): $39.95 for 1GB up to $109.95 for 8GB (plus shipping)
