Im looking for a good low price (~30$) 8gb usb key who can handle a live cd. (and run portable apps on windows computers at work)

Im a little lost with all the kind/choice/read/write speed etc...

I dont want a lot of storage 8gb is enough... instead I want to focus more on the read/write speed who can be good for that.

any of you got suggestions? there is usb key kind only for that work?

USB keys come in ratings of "Class"

Class 10 being the fastest I know of

EDIT - USB 3.0 if you have those ports will obviously be faster, not sure if they follow the same Class rating or continue from 10 upwards
