I'm looking for a small portable (preferably handheld) vacuum that is good at picking up drywall dust. Any ideas?

I purchased a 2.5Gal ShopVac(brand) and the UltraWeb filter didn't fit, despite the company's claim.

Are there any cordless or corded handhelds that are HEPA rated? I get tired of competing with my co-workers for the vac and I'd like one that I can fit in my truck's toolbox for small cleanup jobs.

Thanks for the input. I didn't see a 1gal model on the craftsman website but I'll keep looking and share my findings here.
