The MacBook Air is the best laptop I’ve ever had, and there’s no doubt in my mind that when the time comes to get a new laptop, I’ll still go for a MacBook Air. One thing that sometimes bothers me about this laptop is the amount of storage space it has.
I have the 128 GB model, and being
obsessive slightly insistent about using separate devices for dedicated purposes, the MacBook Air does not need a lot of storage. Then again, with apps and photos, sometimes storage goes by so quickly!
Thank God for micro-Sd cards and external hard drives, right?
But why ruin a sleek MacBook Air with those peripherals? And with SD cards, there is sometimes the issue of data loss due to mounting/unmounting improperly.
Enter the Nifty MiniDrive, which is basically a micro-SD card adapter, which is designed so that it fits flush with the laptop. It even comes in silver (there’s also a red version) so it looks like an integral part of the device, something which is important for people who like good-looking things.
The Nifty MiniDrive is perfect for users who want to have more storage without having to repeatedly connect and disconnect an external hard drive. I must reiterate though that this is only an adapter. You still need a micro-SD; the Nifty MiniDrive comes with a 2 GB one, but I assume you’ll want to get a 64 GB card so you’ll actually feel that your storage capacity has been increased.
The Nifty MiniDrive may not be the cheapest solution but it sure does make for an elegant one.
