Well, this is when it starts to get interesting, the new MacBook Air is shaping up to be an amazing product. With 11.6-inch 64GB MacBook Air stocks already running out that speaks volumes about how popular it is, and this release from Photofast just ups the ante!
The release from Photofast is a 256GB SSD USB drive - I think, not clear on how it works yet, going to have to wait and see - which conceivably doubles the maximum capacity of the new MacBook Air machines. Which is great for the memory junkies out there who feel the need to have 500GB even if they aren’t going to use it who are desperate for the ‘instant on’ which only the MacBook Air with its SSD currently provides. Interestingly Photofast promise speeds of 250MB/s, a 30% performance boost in comparison to the built in SSD by Apple with just 150-160MB/s speeds.
To be honest though, none of that applies to me, I don’t have $1500 to spend on a top of the range 13-inch 256GB MacBook Air. However, i’m still overwhelmed with glee and excitement by this announcement from Photofast as they allegedly plan to offer 64GB/128GB/256GB SSD upgrades. This applies a little more to me, because i’m now thinking about buying the relatively affordable 11.6-inch 64GB MacBook Air which I never even considered before because of the lack of memory, now though I could buy the 11.6-inch 64GB model and add 64GB, 128GB, or even 256GB if I feel like splashing out and have a rather powerful machine, I mean even with the first - 64GB - it would leave me with 128GB of space, if i’m honest, thats more than the average user will ever need! Anyway, just wanted to give my two cents. Huwbert out.
