The Nifty MiniDrive for MacBook Pro [On sale for $35.99, down from $40]
Want to increase your MacBook's hard drive space, but don't want to deal with the hassle of a traditional, clunky external hard drive?
The Nifty MiniDrive is a simple, cost-effective way to give your MacBook's SSD a boost. Combined with a microSD card the MiniDrive becomes a plug-and-play solution that lets you add up to 128GB of extra space instantly (depending on the size of your microSD card). To get you started, each MiniDrive comes pre-loaded with a 2GB microSD card.
Use MiniDrive as hassle-free storage expansion or – with MacBooks's native Time Machine Function – as a backup solution. Unlike your MacBook, the MiniDrive is both water and shock-proof. So even if the worst happens you'll still have all your important files at hand.
