While the MacBook Air is one slim laptop, it does come with a price: a limited storage capacity. For most users – this is a huge problem. And while memory can be expanded with the use of external hard disks – it does mean you have to bring around with you an additional piece of hardware. Some folks have resorted to using the SD card slot on the side of the machine – but any cards slotted in stick out halfway which is pretty unsightly and risks being knocked out accidentally. This is where the Nifty MiniDrive comes in.
The Nifty MiniDrive is essentially a case that houses a microSD card – however, it is designed in such a way that it doesn’t stick out of your MacBook Air. Users can just leave it plugged in and not have to worry about it falling out or removing it before they pack away their notebook. Talk about convenient! The MiniDrive fits so well that it requires a paper clip just to remove it from the slot.
The Nifty MiniDrive comes in two variant – one for the Mac Book Air, and the MiniDrive Pro for the MacBook Pro. Pre-orders start at $30 (the early bird promotion is over), with free shipping if you’re in the US. The Kickstarter goal has been surpassed, so we’ll definitely be seeing the product in the future. Head here to find out more about it or two make a pre-order.
