RE: Imation Drives for PollBook Laptops

Hi Ian,
Imation produces a PCMCIA version for notebooks ( http://www.superdisk.com/ss/ss_dv_mo_pc.html ), and both a Parallel port  and a USB port versions for PCs ( http://www.superdisk.com/ss/ss_dv_ex_pc.html ).
If you are to print reports and need to keep the disk operational during the printing then either USB or PCMCIA will need to be the way. I personally do not feel that there is any speed issues at this time.
My $.02 cents worth

Subject: Imation Drives for PollBook Laptops

Well, it looks like their are no internal LS-120 Imation Drives available for most laptop computers.  They appear to be available for the fancy $3000.00 models.  So it looks like we'll have to go external for the Imation Drive.
We do have an option.  USB interface or Parallel Port.
I'd like some feedback on which would be more appropriate for our application.  Keep in mind that if you want to print reports, you'll need the parallel port.  Could USB vs Parallel Port interface speeds  be an issue?
