Expand Your MacBook Air’s Storage in Style with the Nifty MiniDrive

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.
