    Well, it looks a little different on Windows 8.1, but I see what you mean. I'm going to need a minimum 16GB USB Flash Drive and I don't have a DVD drive/player on my keyboard dock so that's sorta out of the question. I'll be ordering a 32GB USB flash drive tomorrow anyway and that should give me more than enough external storage, but it probably won't get here 'till Thursday.
