I would have to agree w/the above replys ^^

although a floopy drive is cheap, it is exactly that. soon the disks that have data on them will lose their luster, and the seek time is not that good.

unless you are just saving documents, then it's ok to go with a floopy.

otherwise i would go with a usb drive for storage..and they are getting cheaper in prise too.

You don't get much data on a floppy and I fully agree with the others that a USB key drive of about 1 or 2G should be quite adequate.

At our school we couldnt realy hand the work in on floppy disks cos not all the teachers laptops had floppy drives neither did all the computers
