Storing movies and photos can quickly fill up your Macbook. One easy cure is the HyperDrive, which lets you slot up to 128GB of extra storage into your Apple machine.

You simply slot in whatever capacity you wish to add, and start using it as a flash drive. Class 10 cards are supported, so you can enjoy transfer speeds of up to 95MB per second, while the Hyperdrive’s compact design means it does not protrude. It also features an aluminum cap so as to blend in with the look of your laptop, and there is a tiny groove on the surface for easy removal.
