These handy devices can keep kids happily mesmerized in the car or on a flight. Even grownups can use them during a commute or on the exercise machine.

I checked out several of them and came up with six favorites, based on features, intended audience and price. Here's my list...

You can get a terabyte hard drive (1000 gigs) for under $100 now. But do you really need that much disk space? And are these monster drives as fast and reliable as smaller drives?
