    Seems kind of expensive... probably because of the hard drive...

    But can't you make your own?

    Take a Maxor one touch backup drive with about 80gb will cost about $150 or so....

    Then load your own distro.

    For booting, you can use a boot cd, floppy, or boot directly to the usb HD...
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
