[access-uk] Re: Transferring files to new computer

well if you have the money to throw away all I can say is I wish I was that 
rich!!!

Some sites  such as Amazon can be quite a challenge because they are 
extremely busy but there are other options which, while not absolutely 
perfect, are easier to navigate.

Try Expansys www.expansys.co.uk I have not used them but they have a big 
choice.

I generally use Choicestationery which is quite reasonably priced and has no 
delivery charge.  They do a 4GB Kingston USB 2 drive for £41.91 including 
delivery and vat. ref no: DTI/4GB

If you don't want to buy online freephone 0800 093 9040

PC World do one called a PNY 4GB USB drive which is basically unbranded 
though I am sure it is reliable enough but can't say.  It costs £55 or just 
a few pence less including delivery.  I'm not quite comparing like with like 
as the kingston is a better known brand but as you can see, PC World is 
never cheap.

Regards


Graham
