The New Portable PC

Travel a lot? Hate lugging around your laptop or worried about it being stolen? Try this formula. Take one USB drive (512 MB is fine, more is better, natch), add portableapps.com and get a set of completely portable applications that you can use on any computer. All of your applications, settings, and documents are stored on the USB.

portableapps.com comes with open-source programs for anti-virus, email, web browsing, instant messaging, and office productivity. Other applications are available on the site including open-source file compression and media players.

Here’s how it looks installed on my Lexar 1GB drive:

It’s a great solution to a common problem.
