I've read that running raspbian from an usb-stick can speed up your raspberry pi (as explained here). How to do this is clear to me, but I was wondering if it matters what kind of usb stick I'll use.
I know that you can test it by mounting it, but was wondering if it matters if you use a full size or a low profile stick. Because I would very much prefer a low profile one. Are there any differences in the type of usb stick used when booting raspbian from it?
