Going with a 128GB MacBook Air probably seemed like a good idea at the time. You were able to trim your upfront costs by a good margin, but now it’s likely you’ve found yourself struggling to free up enough space for software updates. Unless you’re comfortable performing surgery on your Mac, the best way to increase its storage is with Transcend’s JetDrive Lite Storage Expansion Card. The 256GB 13-inch MacBook Air (Late 2010 – Early 2015) version is now on sale at Amazon for $124.99 shipped, which is about $30 below its regular price and the best deal we’ve ever seen.

Just insert it into the SD card slot and you’re good to go. Unlike a traditional SD card, the JetDrive Lite sports a custom design so it sits flush with your Mac’s chassis. Use the extra space to offload large media files or even for Time Machine so you never miss another backup. Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars from nearly 600 Amazon reviewers. More details are as follows:
