New MacBook Air: USB 3.0 256GB SSD Upgrade

By Peter Chubb - Oct 27, 2010

When we first learned of the new MacBook Air there were a few surprises in store for us; the first was that there was not only an update to the 13.3-inch model, but also a new 11.6-inch model as well. However, the news that the standard models would only come with a 64GB SSD was certainly a shock.

The problem here is that upgrading with Apple can be expensive, its not as if it is an easy process to upgrade like it is on a standard laptop. However, PhotoFast has a solution with a new Air USB 3 Adapter. The USB 3.0 flash drive comes with a 256GB module.

It is said that it is an easy process to transfer all your files to this new device, and once you have done so you will see a speed boost of at least 30 percent. Sean Hollister from Engadget was unable to get any details on a release date or price, but we will keep you informed.

Remember, this is only an option for the 11.6-inch MacBook Air and not the 13.3-inch. This looks to be the ultimate spare SSD portable storage solution.

    200 dollar would be the absolute max for me. otherwise 64Gb will be more than enough.
