A SSD for a portable device of any kind seems like overkill, but with USB 3 having a SSD for portable Operating System makes sense, because it's fast and secure depending on your situation. ICY DOCK has a new aluminum USB 2.5" SSD/HDD enclosure to fit the bill. They've written an article, which they asked us to share with you.

"Portable operating systems can be beneficial for practically any user in almost any situation. Regardless of profession or occupation, a majority of today's users tend to operate on several different computers for their daily functions. Users can utilize their personal desktop preferences on multiple systems by using a portable OS on any computer that is capable of booting from a USB drive. This means that you can carry all your personal desktop settings, applications, music, and documents with you on a single portable device. Utilizing a portable OS is also effective if you need to access any data from a hard disk of a computer that has crashed or won't boot. It is the perfect solution for students and or business people that are always on the go and hate having to use different computer systems or worrying about compatibility of programs.

With current technology, you can take the portable OS to even greater lengths by utilizing Super Speed USB 3.0 and a Solid State Drive. This way, your portable OS will be low powered and extremely fast. Solid state drives are also known to be much more shock resistant than normal disk hard drives, a feature that is very important considering that the device will be mobile.
